Stevens keeps commitment

CONNERSVILLE (AP) — New Boston Celtics coach Brad Stevens isn’t so busy with his new job that he had to break a commitment to appear in Connersville’s bicentennial parade.

Stevens appeared in the parade Saturday, fulfilling a promise to made to former Butler star and Connersville native Matt Howard.

Howard tells WTHR-TV he was “shocked” Stevens made the parade after appearing at a news conference Friday in Boston. He told Stevens he could back out, but the coach insisted.

Stevens says the city about 50 miles east of Indianapolis is the first place he drove to after he was hired at Butler. A year ago, he promised Howard that that he’d appear in the bicentennial parade.

On Sunday, Stevens was back at work, watching games in the NBA’s Orlando Summer League in Florida.

 

Coyne Racing hires Conway

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Dale Coyne Racing has signed Mike Conway and Pippa Mann for five of the remaining eight IndyCar Series races.

Conway will drive the doubleheader event this weekend in Toronto, as well as the doubleheader in Houston in October. Mann was announced Monday as driver for the October season finale at Fontana.

Coyne has used a variety of drivers for his second entry alongside full-time driver Justin Wilson.

Conway drove for Coyne in Detroit, where he won the first doubleheader and finished third in the second race.

Mann has run three races for Coyne this year, and was 15th on Sunday at Pocono. It’s the first race for Coyne in which Mann’s car did not have a mechanical failure.

Coyne has not announced who will drive at Mid-Ohio, Sonoma or Baltimore.
