NBATA Member Since: 2011
Brian Dolan began working for the Boston Celtics as an Assistant Athletic Trainer/Physical Therapist in 2011. Dolan joined the Celtics after working eleven years at ProSports Therapy, an outpatient orthopedic physical therapy clinic in Waltham, Massachusetts.

A native of Wakefield, Massachusetts, Dolan’s path to working for his hometown Celtics has been interesting. While working full-time as a staff physical therapist at ProSports, he went back to Salem State University to earn his Bachelor’s Degree in Athletic Training. After graduating and becoming certified as an athletic trainer, an opportunity arose to volunteer in professional baseball with the Toronto Blue Jays (Double AA) affiliate New Hampshire Fishercats. All these experiences led to his current position with the Celtics.

A believer that education is the key to success, Dolan just graduated in 2016 with his Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Northeastern University. He has been certified as a strength and conditioning specialist (CSCS) since 2004. Additional certifications in kinesiotape, CES, and PES have been earned.
