BOSTON (CBS) – The Boston Celtics have plenty on their “to do” list for this off-season, but finding a new head coach won’t be one of them.
Some thought Doc Rivers may retire following Boston’s frustrating 2012-13 campaign, but the head coach will be back for his 10th season on the Celtics bench according to multiple reports.
Celtics general manager Danny Ainge confirmed the news with the Boston Globe’s Gary Washburn, saying “we’ve got a coach everybody would love to have.”

Rivers, who has guided the Celtics to 416-305 regular season record in his nine years, has three years remaining on his current contract.
The Celtics still have plenty of unanswered questions remaining for the off-season, mainly if veterans Paul Pierce or Kevin Garnett will return.
But at least if Doc Rivers is coming back, the future doesn’t look as dim — whether it be continuing on with the veteran group or starting the rebuilding process.
