Indiana Alum: I’d ‘Bet My Life’ Brad Stevens Hasn’t Thought About College Return

Brad Stevens can’t avoid it. No matter how much he has managed to avoid the topic since becoming the Boston Celtics’ head coach, many basketball observers believe he’s only biding his time before a return to the college ranks.

Should The Celtics Consider Bringing Avery Bradley Off The Bench?
