Celtics assistant Jay Larranaga not expected to return to the team

Clevis Murray: Source: As of right now, longtime Celtics assistant coach Jay Larranaga isnโ€™t expected to return to the team. Larranaga had been with the team since 2012 and served on the coaching staffs of Doc Rivers & Brad Stevens. He also interviewed to replace Rivers & Stevens.
Stevens interviewed Celtics assistants Jay Larranaga, Scott Morrison and Jerome Allen and plans to broaden the search to include Milwaukee Bucks assistant coach Darvin Ham and Billups, a person with knowledge of the process told USA TODAY Sports. ESPN reported the Celtics wanted to interview Nets assistant Ime Udoka, Dallas assistant Jamahl Mosley and Bucks assistant Charles Lee. Coaching insiders indicate the Celtics will hire externally rather than promoting from within.
