Brad Stevens

The head basketball coach of Butler University is preparing his team for the final game of the season. Not quite underdogs, the Bulldogs take on the University of Connecticut Huskies in Monday night's national championship game.  Just one year after the Bulldogs lost to Duke in the closing seconds of the 2010 championship game, the 34-year-old Stevens is taking his team to a second consecutive national championship game.

The Indiana native, who quit his corporate job in 2000 to take an unpaid coaching job at Butler, is in high demand at bigger schools, but told the Houston Chronicle, "I think you hear people say all the time that the grass is greener somewhere else. Well, I think we recognize the grass is very green at Butler."
