Morgantown, West Virginia – According to multiple reports, former West Virginia Mountaineers point guard Joe Mazzulla has interviewed for the head coaching position for the Boston Celtics!
Mazzulla, who is currently an assistant coach with the team, was the former head coach at Fairmont State University, where he led the team to a 43-17 record over two seasons from 2017 to 2019.
Former head coach Brad Stevens moved to become the team’s new President of Basketball of Operations and interviewed Mazzulla for his old position, as well as assistants Jerome Allen, Jay Larranaga and Scott Morrison.
Prior to beginning his coaching career, Mazzulla played four seasons at West Virginia University for head coaches John Beilein and Bob Huggins. His teams made four-straight NCAA Tournament appearances, including a berth in the Final Four in 2010.
Mazzulla is also considered a prime candidate to ultimately replace Bob Huggins at West Virginia University when Huggins decides to retire. Best of luck to Mazzulla on landing a huge opportunity to become the next head coach of the Boston Celtics!
Per @wojespn, Brad Stevens interviewed Joe Mazzulla in addition to Jerome Allen, Jay Larranaga and Scott Morrison from his own staff.
Mazzulla was the coach responsible for the famous ping-pong paddle workouts with Romeo Langford.
