College Coach Laments Paul Pierce Trade
University of North Carolina coach Roy Williams believes Brad Stevens will do very well as he makes the move from college to the Celtics bench, but he does have some mixed feelings about the situation. He wishes Stevens could be coaching Paul Pierce.
In a chat during this week’s Jim Calhoun Celebrity Golf Classic in Connecticut, Williams told the Herald that he’d have liked to see his former Kansas pupil remain in Green his entire career.
“Yeah, I am a little sad,” he said. “And I understand that it had to happen. They want to make over the team because everybody’s getting older.”
