FORT WAYNE (Indiana's NewsCenter) - With several past Red Coat honorees present, Butler basketball coach Brad Stevens became the latest to get the Man Anthonys' highest honor Saturday night.

Stevens received his Red Coat at the annual dinner, shifted to the Memorial Coliseum, and expressed gratitude while stating he had full appreciation of the honor bestowed upon him.

Stevens, very busy getting Butler ready for its shift to the Atlantic Ten Conference next season, left after the dinner and will not be present for the two day Charity Classic golf event that gets underway Sunday with its new format that the Mad Anthonys hope will spur interest in the event, especially with the addition of LPGA pros in competition at Sycamore Hills Sunday and Monday.
