Who will be the Celtics’ next head coach is a question many fans and spectators are asking. Recent news states that Boston Head Coach Brad Stevens is stepping up to takeover Danny Ainge’s role as the new Head of Basketball Operations of the Celtics, as Ainge steps away partly due to health reasons. Stevens now will be looking for his replacement as well for his former role, as he leads the search for the Celtics‘ new head coach.
Some candidates for the position have already been revealed as Chris Haynes from Yahoo Sports reports, “Los Angeles Lakers assistant coach Jason Kidd and former Atlanta Hawks coach Lloyd Pierce are expected to be head-coaching candidates for the Boston Celtics.”
Basketball Analyst at Stadium, Jeff Goodman, joins The Garden Report to go over the different options for the position, and what new GM Brad Stevens NEEDS to consider when hiring the next head coach. Should they go with someone with coaching experience or a new face like a former player? Do they go for a young coach or an older one? Also, how much say does Celtics young stars Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown involved?
