BOSTON - There are more than rumblings that Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers, who played at Marquette University, is considering leavig his job.
Yardbarker gives an in-depth analysis of those rumblings, which started with an ESPN tweet:
DEVELOPING: Doc Rivers believes it "may be time for a change" in his status as Celtics coach, source told @chris_broussard.— SportsCenter (@SportsCenter) June 12, 2013
Yardbarker's story said that spending time with his family might be the most likely outcome of a departure from the Celtics, but the coaching job with the L.A. Clippers is also open.
For those who love Marquette basketball and fear Buzz Williams may bolt MU for greener pastures and a basketball program with BCS football money attached to it, there's also the hope Rivers would come back and coach his alma mater.
Of course, Marquette fans, you have to wait for April for those yearly Buzz Williams rumors to come around.
In the meantime, Boston Celtics aficionados are now enduring that angst.
