Poll: Do you agree with Celtics coach, front office changes?

Previous poll shows voters believe Bruins' Taylor Hall has made more impact over Jeremy Swayman
By Staff | Jun 03, 2021

The Boston Celtics' 2020-21 season has come to a close after a 123-109 loss to Brooklyn on Tuesday, June 1, which gave Brooklyn a 4-1 playoff series victory.

A day later, the Celtics announced moves to shake up their coaching ranks and front office staff, as longtime president of basketball operations and general manager — as well as former Boston star — Danny Ainge announced his retirement, and Brad Stevens stepped down from his head coach role to assume Ainge's leadership position.

With the significant shakeup for Boston, the Courier Publications/VillageSoup sports poll focuses on the changes and asks: How do you feel about the major coaching and front office changes the Celtics made?

Stevens coached the Celtics eight seasons, while Ainge guided the front office decision-making for 20 years, and was the only general manager Boston had under Wyc Grousbeck's ownership. Stevens was only one of two coaches — the other was "Doc" Rivers — to be hired under Grousbeck's ownership as well.

The most recent sports poll honed in on the Boston Bruins, and more specifically, did Taylor Hall or Jeremy Swayman make a more significant impact to the team since they joined.

Fifty-four-point-two percent believe Hall has made more of an impact, while the other 45.8 percent chose Swayman.

Since being traded from Buffalo, Hall has 12 goals, including four in the playoffs thus far, while Swayman has appeared in 10 games — with none in the postseason — with a .945 save percentage.

The Bruins currently are locked in an Eastern Conference second-round series with the New York Islanders. Boston leads the series 2-1, after the Bruins' Brad Marchand scored the game winning goal in overtime in a 2-1 victory Thursday, June 3.
