Report: Doc Rivers Returning To Celtics Next Year

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┬ámultiple┬áreports.

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.
