Celtics' Coach Stevens Headlines Carroll Coaching Clinic

Posted: Updated:

After leading the Butler Bulldogs to two Final Fours in back to back seasons, Brad Stevens was hired in 2013 by the Boston Celtics as their head coach and led the them to the Eastern Conference playoffs this past season.

Stevens is a childhood friend of Saints men's basketball coach Carson Cunningham. The two played AAU basketball together in their teens and still stay in touch. At today's coaches clinic Stevens showed local coaches what drills he runs for his Celtic team along with some newer drills that he believes will benefit high school players. But even with the experience Stevens has with the Celtics, he still thinks he can learn something from the other speakers which included Capital coaches and former Saints hoopsters Bill Pilgeram and Guy Almquist

"Coaching in the NBA you get asked a lot to speak at clinics, but there are great coaches at every level," said Stevens. "So I'll learn as much from everybody else as much as they'll learn from me."

"I'm very grateful that a childhood friend would take the time to come to Helena, and visit Carroll, and talk to high school, grade school hoops coaches, and then obviously talk at our dinner tonight," added Cunningham.
