That's what I thought too, assuming he has what it takes. This kind of hire is something a team can afford to do when it's rebuilding anyway. Stevens can learn the league without the win-now pressure, and if it all works out, he'll be ready to win big by the time the talent is.
And if it doesn't work, well, like the other posts said, no real harm done. Boston isn't going to win anything for awhile no matter who's coaching, and Stevens can always go back to the college ranks.
