Butler Head Man Brad Stevens Hired As Boston Celtics Next Coach

Out of nowhere.

College basketball fans have always wondered if Butler coach Brad Stevens would ever leave the Bulldogs for a "bigger" opportunity.

Today, that question was answered as he was officially hired as the next head coach of the Boston Celtics.

The team tweeted out the news this afternoon, along with a press release.

Stevens, who has been with Butler since 2001 and became the head coach in 2007, led the Bulldogs to two consecutive NCAA Championship Game appearances in 2010 and 2011.

The organization has planned a press conference for 11 a.m. on Friday to formally introduce Stevens.
