Jamie Young Rumors
For seven years Young had worked for the Celtics as a video coordinator until he was promoted to the endless road life of an advance scout. And now in this moment of organizational euphoria, he tried to make sense of the telephone call that had come hours earlier: Without warning, his 56-year-old father died of a heart attack in the small Indiana town where he had raised Young. “I’m going to pay for his funeral,” Pierce told Young. “I’m going to pay for everything.”
For the next few days, the city was locked down as authorities searched for the suspects who bombed the Boston Marathon. On the one-year anniversary of the bombing this April, Young plans to again go for a run, only this time in the Boston Marathon. It would be his first marathon of any kind.
Jamie Young was about to go for a run. “That’s when I saw all the breaking news,” the Celtics assistant coach said. On that April Monday last year, Young stepped off the treadmill at the Celtics’ practice facility in Waltham and hurried to check in with his colleagues. Young was concerned, because he knew that Doc Rivers, then the Celtics coach, and forward Jeff Green were both living in downtown Boston.
The Boston Celtics announced today that they have added Ron Adams, Micah Shrewsberry, and Walter McCarty to the team as assistant coaches. Per team policy, terms of the deals were not disclosed. Adams, Shrewsberry and McCarty join Jamie Young and Jay Larranaga on Head Coach Brad Stevens’ coaching staff.
