Just as quick as you saw Butler become one of the hottest teams in the country, so did they're head coach Brad Stevens. With a 89-15 career record in 3 years at Butler, Stevens has been a hot topic surrounding head college coaching vacancies, but now it looks like some NBA teams will be giving him a look.

After the loss to Duke, Yahoo! Sports's Adrian Wojnarowski tweeted "Well-respected NBA GM just texted on Brad Stevens: 'Is he an NBA coach? Pretty sophisticated for his age and experience.'" Even fellow Final Four and 4-time National Champion coach Mike Krzyzewski sounded impressed in the coaches efforts in this years national title game "They'll probably win it next year. They're the best team we've played. No one played us any harder or any better than Butler. That's why this national championship … we were so fortunate to win. We had to play so hard to beat them."

ESPN NBA Insider Chad Ford said today during a chat about who the Indiana Pacers should hire as they're next head coach "Brad Stevens of Butler. He's young, has a great basketball mind and most importantly for NBA coaches, he doesn't over coach. He has a great game plan but then backs off and lets the players execute. He'd be a very popular pick and could give the franchise a much needed boost of energy."

Well see how Stevens situation unravels over the next few months...
