Celtics hire Joe Mazzulla as an assistant coach originally appeared on nbcsportsboston.com
With long-time assistant Micah Shrewsberry headed to Purdue University to be their head coach, the Celtics hired Joe Mazzulla as an assistant, according to Adrian Wojnarowski.
Mazzulla played for West Virginia University from 2006-2011 and left an assistant coaching job at Fairmont State to become an assistant coach for the Maine Red Claws in 2016. He reportedly impressed the Celtics coaching staff enough to earn a spot on the staff.
He returned to Fairmont State two years ago to become their Head Coach, but will now enter the NBA coaching ring as a 30-year-old.
