September 13, 2007, Greencastle, Ind. - Brad Stevens, head men's basketball coach at Butler University, "actually did what so many of our clients would like to do -- he left his 'job' to follow his passion," notes an announcement of his September 19 speech to the Indiana chapter of the Association of Career Professionals International (ACP). The event begins at 11:30 a.m. at the main campus of Ivy Tech Community College at Meridian Street and Fall Creek Parkway in Indianapolis.
"After graduating from DePauw University [in 1999] where he earned all conference and academic all-conference honors, he began his career as a marketing associate at Eli Lilly and Company," continues the organization's announcement on Stevens. "Even though he was strongly encouraged by friends and family to stay, he left his position to pursue his love of basketball. The rest is history. Brad was named head coach for nationally recognized Butler University in 2007."
