Amaker to Host Harvard Basketball Coaches Clinic with Boston Celtics Head Coach Brad Stevens

Amaker will host the eighth annual Harvard Basketball Coaches Clinic with Boston Celtics Head Coach Brad Stevens (Gil Talbot).

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Men's basketball head coach Tommy Amaker has announced that the eighth annual Harvard Basketball Coaches Clinic will be held Saturday, Oct. 25 at Lavietes Pavilion from 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

This year's event will feature a lecture and Q&A session with Boston Celtics head coach Brad Stevens. Entering his second season at the helm of the Celtics, Stevens took his position on the parquet floor after spending six seasons as the head coach of the Butler Bulldogs where he boasted a 166-49 record, four Horizon League regular season championships, three league tournament titles and six trips to the postseason.

Stevens led the Bulldogs to NCAA national championship game in both 2010 and 2011, capping off a two-year run which saw the team post an overall record of 61-15 while winning back-to-back Horizon League regular season and tournament titles.  His resume also features several individual accolades, including being named a finalist for the Jim Phelan National Coach of the Year Award in 2008, 2009 and 2010, and being named a finalist for the Skip Prosser Man of the Year Award in 2010.

The eighth annual Harvard Basketball Coaches Clinic will begin with opening remarks from Coach Amaker. Those in attendance will then have the opportunity to observe a Harvard basketball practice with insight and analysis from Coach Amaker. Following lunch, the day will conclude with the lecture and Q&A session with Stevens.

Past guest clinicians have included Larry Brown, Doug Collins, Jeff Van Gundy, Avery Johnson and Doc Rivers.

Cost for the clinic is $75 if registering by Oct. 17 and $100 if registering the week of the clinic. Included in the cost is a Nike Harvard basketball polo and buffet lunch. To register for the clinic, click here.
