Press Release: "The Boston Celtics announced today that they have added Ron Adams, Micah Shrewsberry, and Walter McCarty to the team as assistant coaches. Per team policy, terms of the deals were not disclosed. Adams, Shrewsberry, and McCarty join Jamie Young and Jay Larranaga on Head Coach Brad Stevens' coaching staff." 

Earlier today Brad Stevens and the Celtics informed the press that they had officially finalized a coaching staff for the 2013-14 campaign and beyond. 

In the wake of his departure, former Celtics head coach Doc Rivers left behind three assistant coaching vacancies - sparing both Jamie Young and Jay Larranaga - which would eventually lead to Stevens' responsibility of filling those voids. 

As a result, Stevens searched high and low before landing Ron Adams (a Chicago Bulls assistant the last three years), Micah Shrewsberry (a Purdue University assistant the last three years), and, most recently, Walter McCarty (last served as an assistant for the Indiana Pacers during the 2010-11 season).

"I am really excited about our assistant coaching staff that we have here in Boston," stated Stevens in the press release. "In this group, we have successfully assembled a passionate, intelligent, hard-working, and humble staff with a diverse set of experiences in coaching. We are all eager to get to work with this year's team, and take great pride in being a part of the Boston Celtics organization." 

The newly named staff is appropriately tailored to Stevens' needs, after all, he put it together. 

They have a guy in McCarty who knows exactly what it will be like for the players going through the current rebuilding period due to time spent on losing Celtics teams during his playing career, a familiar face in Shrewsberry who worked under Stevens from 2007-11 at Butler, and a trio of guys who have tasted success at the NBA level in Adams, Larranaga, and Young.
