Butler to move quickly in finding Stevens' replacement

By Jeff Borzello | College Basketball Writer

Butler is expected to move fast in its quest to find a replacement for Brad Stevens, sources told CBSSports.com.

"I bet it gets done quick," said one source with knowledge of the search.

Stevens left for the Boston Celtics on Wednesday afternoon after six seasons as the head coach of the Bulldogs.

With only one week until the first session of the July recruiting period begins, the program seems determined to get the replacement process going soon.

Sources indicated that Butler has a small group of initial candidates to interview, including all three current assistant coaches on the Bulldogs' staff. The current assistants are Michael Lewis, Terry Johnson and Brandon Miller.

One name not on the list, per sources, is former assistant coach Matthew Graves. Graves could have been next in line, but he left earlier this offseason to be the head coach at South Alabama.

Stevens led the Bulldogs to two Final Four appearances in his six seasons at the helm, going 166-49 overall.
