Report: Vinny Del Negro On Celtics' 'Short List' Of Coaching Replacements

While Doc Rivers hasn't said if he'll be back as coach of the Celtics for the 2010-11 season -- for whatever it is worth, the Globe's Gary Washburn thinks he will stay with Boston -- some are already looking ahead to his possible replacements. This includes CBS Sports' Ken Berger, who reports that Vinny Del Negro is on the "Celtics' short list of candidates to replace Rivers if he steps down to spend more time with his family."

Del Negro coached the Bulls for two seasons (2008-2010), and finished with an 82-82 record before he was fired in May.
