WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (Purdue Sports) — Purdue men's basketball head coach Matt Painter announced Friday that Micah Shrewsberry has rejoined the Boilermakers' coaching staff as associate head coach.

The 42-year old Indianapolis native returns for his second stint at Purdue and is considered one of the top, young coaches in America.

"We are excited that Micah will return to our coaching staff," Painter said. "He had a very successful stint with the Celtics, learning from one of the top coaches in the world. Micah has an outstanding basketball mind and is a very strong recruiter. He has six years of experience in the NBA and has coached in two Final Fours. He will fit in very well here at Purdue, and we're looking forward to his return to West Lafayette."

"My family and I are very excited to come back to Purdue and be a part of the community again," Shrewsberry said. "I have been lucky enough the last 12 years to work with the two best coaches in America and the opportunity to work and learn again under coach Painter was too good to pass up. As good of a coach as coach Painter is, he is an even better person. The way he treated us and made us a part of his family is a big reason we are coming back. I have been a big Purdue fan since I left and watched as many games as I could. I admire what coach Painter and his tremendous staff have built during his tenure, and I am really looking forward to being a part of it."

Shrewsberry has learned from the best coaches in America, spending the last six seasons as an assistant coach with the Boston Celtics under head coach Brad Stevens. He helped the Celtics to the playoffs in each of the last five seasons, including trips to the Eastern Conference finals in 2017 and 2018. Under Shrewsberry, the Celtics' offense was one of the best in the NBA this past season, ranking sixth in the league in 3-pointers made and seventh in 3-point percentage. A year ago, Boston was second in the league behind NBA champion Golden State in 3-point percentage.

Shrewsberry returns to Purdue where he was an assistant coach during the 2011-12 and 2012-13 seasons before departing to Boston. He helped the Boilermakers to the second round of the 2012 NCAA Tournament.

Prior to his time at Purdue, he spent four seasons at Butler under Stevens, first as the coordinator of basketball operations, then as an assistant coach for the last three seasons. He helped the Bulldogs to the 2010 and 2011 national championship games before starting his two-year stint with the Boilermakers.

A graduate of Cathedral High School, Shrewsberry began his coaching career in 1999 as a graduate assistant at the University of Indianapolis. After stints as an assistant coach at Wabash College (2000-01) and DePauw University (2001-03), he spent the 2003-04 and 2004-05 seasons as the director of basketball operations at Marshall University. He served as the head coach for IU-South Bend during the 2005-06 and 2006-07 seasons.

Shrewsberry earned a B.A. from Hanover College in 1999 and a master's degree in sports management from Indiana State in 2003. He and his wife, Molly, have four children: Braeden, Nicholas, Caitlin and Grace.
