Brad Stevens Rumors

Stevens graduated with a degree in economics, but when Thad Matta offered him a low-paying, part-time position in Butler’s basketball program, Stevens jumped at the opportunity and resigned from his marketing job at Eli Lilly. He learned alongside Butler assistant Todd Lickliter, who quickly became a friend and mentor. It was Lickliter who stressed the value of a clear mind and fresh legs — Butler’s practices usually lasted no longer than an hour — and the need to keep the game plan as simple as possible.
