The Shotgun/Throwdown: Joe Mazzulla named Boston Celtics Interim Head Coach

Welcome, By-Godders, to The Shotgun/Throwdown, WVU’s best place for sports links, information, sophomoric humor, and daily distractions.

Former West Virginia guard Joe Mazzulla has been named the interim head coach of the Boston Celtics for the 2022-23 season. The situation, while unfortunate for suspended coach Ime Udoka, is a great opportunity for Mazzulla. The WVU product is taking over a great NBA team that made the Finals last season and is still seen as a contender this year.

Mazzulla started his coaching career as an assistant at Glenville State and Fairmont State, and then joined the Celtics’ G-League team as an assistant coach.
