Shrewsberry was on Stevens' staff at Butler when the Bulldogs made the national championship game in 2010 and 2011.
After his first stint with Purdue from 2011-2013, Shrewsberry reunited with Stevens as part of his coaching staff with the Celtics.
Shrewsberry spent six seasons in Boston before returning to Purdue in 2018.
We're looking forward to seeing Stevens sit courtside at the Bryce Jordan Center in his Penn State gear at some point in the future. You can watch his full comments here:
