Found May 16, 2013 on RealGM:
Doc Rivers will remain as head coach of the Boston Celtics next season, his 10th with the franchise. "Yeah (he'll be back), Doc and I are talking about our team next year," Danny Ainge said. "(No suspense) from my perspective. We've got a great coach. We've got a coach everybody would love to have and he's got three years left on his contract and I think Doc likes Boston, too.Coaches get tired, though. It's a hard job. "You guys are the only one (who made it an issue)." Rivers signed a five-year extension two years ago, but left open the possibility of stepping down following the Celtics' elimination in the playoffs.
