Rivers Back to Celtics for Tenth Season
After Doc Rivers left the door slightly ajar on the possibility of him stepping down as coach, Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge promptly shut it Thursday afternoon, confirming that Rivers will return for a 10th season.
“Yeah (he’ll be back), Doc and I are talking about our team next year,” Ainge said. “(No suspense) from my perspective. We’ve got a great coach. We’ve got a coach everybody would love to have and he’s got three years left on his contract and I think Doc likes Boston, too.Coaches get tired, though. It’s a hard job.”
