Boston Celtics head coach Brad Stevens made news this week when it was reported that he turned down $70 Million to be the next coach of the Indiana Hoosiers.

Stevens was asked about that report, and said that it was simply inaccurate.

“I was never offered a package, so that’s all news to me,” Stevens said, per John Karalis of the Boston Sports Journal. “I wasn’t going to leave anyway.”

Brad Stevens would go on to talk about the mounting frustration with how much he’s been asked about the Hoosiers gig.

“I understand people have to ask,” Stevens said, via NBC Sports Boston. “I don’t know where people get their information. I don’t know why people decide to share it on a given night, whatever the case may be. I do know that I only know what’s true. I know that I am very very fortunate to be in the position I’m in and hopefully, I’ve proven my commitment to that over and over now.

“What I was saying the other night is I also realize, like, this is a great challenge. This is a great responsibility. And these aren’t usually forever jobs that I’m in for a reason, right? I mean, like, I think that ultimately, you have to do really well. Your team has to show consistent growth. You have to compete at the level that you want to compete at, and I get that. I understand that.”

While Brad Stevens’ Celtics have struggled to get over the hump in the past two seasons, it’s clear that the coach remains committed to the team. Even if it doesn’t work out in Boston, Stevens is still a highly-regarded head coach, and I’m sure he could land another head coaching job in the NBA.
Stevens has most definitely heard enough about the potential for him to go back to a college basketball program.
