Breaking News: Joe Mazzulla coach has revealed his retirement date

Given that Jaylen Brown is also due for a contract extension and the Boston Celtics lost to the Miami Heat in the NBA Playoffs, there have been concerns about Joe Mazzulla’s future as the team’s head coach.

The Boston Celtics intend to retain Joe Mazzulla as head coach, as stated by President of Basketball Operations Brad Stevens.



Mazzulla took over for Ime Udoka during the summer off-season of last year, and he recently concluded his debut season leading the Celtics. Following his team’s championship run in the Eastern Conference, Mazzulla faced mounting pressure to leave the Celtics.



The Celtics advanced to the Eastern Conference Finals where they will face the Miami Heat after victories over the Atlanta Hawks and the Philadelphia 76ers in the playoffs. However, following that series’ opening three losses, there was a lot of conjecture that Mazzulla might leave his position as head coach in the off-season.

But the Celtics rallied to win three straight games in the series, setting up a decisive Game Seven at Boston’s TD Garden. Mazzulla’s position as head coach appeared to be much more secure than it did following Game Three, despite the fact that the Celtics lost to the Heat to leave the NBA Playoffs.


Additionally, Stevens, the president of basketball operations for the Celtics, has now discussed Mazzulla’s future as head coaching. According to Stevens, the team’s coach from 2013 to 21, Mazzulla is still anticipated to hold the position for the foreseeable future.

When asked if Mazzulla is the best choice to head the team, Stevens responded, “Yeah, I think he is,” to NBC Sports. “I felt he performed admirably with this bunch. After every game, people will overreact to the greatest coaches and players. That is the way things are always. We must be able to assess things holistically since we are aware of that going in.

He’s an excellent leader who will only improve in whichever area he can learn from this year on account of his never-ending pursuit of knowledge. He is also responsible. Those are difficult to come by leadership attributes.


I know it’s easy to talk about, but it’s difficult to illustrate all of those things with the pressures and scrutiny he faced. All of our teammates, staff, and those in his immediate vicinity have faith in him, therefore we must work hard to continue to encourage him.
