“Indiana was ready to offer him seven years and seventy million dollars. But he did not entertain him. There’s just no point quitting the Boston Celtics for a college job. It’s in the high 6-7 million range anyway. They ended up hiring Knick’s assistant, Mike Woodson, but it’s obviously not the same with this number. “

Brad Stevens: Did he make the right decision?

Brad Stevens made his way into the NBA after coaching Butler University and bringing the small program to the glory of the NCAA tournament. While losing in the 2011 NCAA tournament final to UConn Huskies led by his current point guard Kemba Walker, he made a huge impact on the sport in Indiana.

Coaching the Boston Celtics will always be the better job. If Stevens was near the end of his NBA career or was fighting in the league, it would still have made sense for him to take this step. But he’s still a young trainer with a lot to prove in the NBA. He shouldn’t jump with the gun and return to the NCAA.

The Hoosiers would be the only job Stevens would take if he left the NBA. It’s his hometown team, and he’s still popular in the area for his exploits with Butler. Maybe in the future he will train the Hoosiers.
