Butler coach Brad Stevens takes job with Boston Celtics

Butler University's head basketball coach Brad Stevens is taking a new job in the NBA coaching the Boston Celtics.

Stevens met with the media Friday for the first time since announcing the move.

"I couldn't be more thrilled about the opportunity, but I certainly want to thank and appreciate Butler," said Stevens.

At 36, Stevens is one of the youngest coaches in the league. He coached the Bulldogs in their back-to-back runs to the national championship games in 2010 and 2011.
