Stevens "played at nearby DePauw," adds the report on the 1999 graduate of the University. The 31-year-old, "one of the youngest coaches in Division I, led Butler to a school- and Horizon League-record 30-4 mark in his first year as head coach last season. The Bulldogs, ranked among the nation's Top 25 almost all season, lost to Tennessee in overtime in the second round of the NCAA tournament."

"We are extremely excited to reach this long-term agreement to have Brad continue to lead our program," says Butler athletic director Barry Collier. "Brad has demonstrated that he understands the Butler way."
