Rivers says he 'probably will' be back

Doc Rivers says he is likely coming back to coach the Boston Celtics next season.

Rivers' status has been the source of speculation for some time, and the sense was that he may decide to take a break from coaching. After his team was ousted from the Eastern Conference semifinals by Miami on Wednesday night, Rivers revealed that he "probably will" return.

Rivers just completed his sixth season with the Celtics. He says he's "a Celtic" and "wants to win again here."
