The Boston Celtics and Danny Ainge surprised everybody when they hired Bulter’s Brad Stevens as their head coach on Wednesday afternoon.

This is totally under the radar and totally a Celtics move. No one expected it and everyone will envy it.

There were no leaks, no word of meetings or interviews.

Stevens, who became a college sensation at Bulter University, will become the youngest head coach in the NBA at the ripe age of 36-years-old.

In his six seasons, Stevens has led the Bulldogs to a 166-49 record, four Horizon League regular season championships, three league tournament titles and give trips to postseason tournament play. He owns the top two seingle season win totals in Butler and Horizon League history, and he’s the only coach in school and league history to lead a team to the NCAA Division I Nation Championship Game — twice.

It will be an interesting transition for the former Bulter coach. He won’t have much “talent”, per say, but will definitely have lots of young players — what he excelled with in the collegiate ranks.
