Holy **** indeed. Sucks for Butler, but Kudo's to Brad.
Just one more Indiana born and bread making an impact in the NBA. Way to represent.
It's already been said, but HOLY ****. That is all.
WE ARE NOT GETTING ERIC GORDON
Shocker!!! I though no way would Brad be interested in the NBA.
WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW.
Take me out to the black, tell 'em I ain't coming back. Burn the land and boil the sea, you can't take the sky from me.
What the hell...
Wuh? Well okay then.
Congrats to Brad. I'm not looking forward to all the experts talking about how Butler will fade into oblivion now, not realizing it had a great program several coaches before Stephens.
If they really wanted to tank, don't you think they would have hired Tom Crean?
Not totally surprised though. I always knew that one day he'd get an offer that he couldn't refuse. I just thought that it would be from a premier college program.
Didn't see that one coming.

Wow, congrats to Boston. That's an awesome signing.
Grats to Stevens. I wanted him for Shaw's replacement and I didn't think he'd leave Butler so soon. Man, did he just trump my thoughts. Way to go, way to represent.
Frank Vogel says "Killer instinct, start strong, build a lead and then step on their throats."
I'm not sure who Butler gets to replace him. Their lead assistant, Graves, left to coach Southern Alabama. Maybe Michael Lewis, but I'm not sure he's experienced enough yet (although Stevens wasn't either).
This has to be the shocker of the off-season. Wow!
If he was interested in the NBA I would have preferred to have him be the newbie assistant for the Pacers.
Wow, again! Seems like there has been a steadily increasing trickle of young head coaches post-Vogel.

Michael Pina, Red94: "There are so many different ways the Pacers can beat you. They have an All-Star scoring threat, imposing figures on the front line, steady point guard play, and most importantly, a defense that'll choke the life out of just about every offense that crosses its path."
Vegas never saw that coming.. Wow....
I think Butler will be fine but I'm curious why Brad wanted to make a jump to the NBA
Now maybe Purdue can recruit indiana again..
Oh wow. Absolutely unreal.
Great for Brad though.
Still, wow wow wow.
Stop quoting people I have on ignore!
Unbelievable! He's going to have a rough couple years getting this thing off the ground it looks like.
