The Celtics have made an official decision on the offensive lineman

The Boston Celtics have officially resolved their offending head coach situation Ime Udokos.

Athletic reported that the 45-year-old tactician had a consensual relationship with one of the club’s employees, which is considered a breach of the franchise’s code of conduct. For this violation, the head coach was suspended for the entire upcoming season.

“The team suspends coach Ime Udoka for the entire upcoming season due to a violation of internal rules. A decision on his future at the club will be made soon. The suspension takes effect immediately,” the club’s statement said.

Meanwhile, I. Udoka himself apologized, but did not elaborate on the situation.

“I want to apologize to the players, the fans, the entire Celtics organization and my family for letting them down. I regret putting the team in a difficult situation and accept the club’s decision. Out of respect for everyone involved in this situation, I will not comment further on it,” said the coach.

In the NBA world, it caused many different reactions. Some wondered why he was given essentially the same punishment as Phoenix Suns owner Robert Sarver, who committed far more morally serious offenses, while others simply could not understand why the story was being escalated to such an extent.

The publicity of the story will affect I.Udoka’s personal life as well. He is not married, but has spent a decade in a relationship with actress Nia Long, the couple is raising a son.

A Celtics assistant will take over the helm on a temporary basis Joe Mazzulla. The promising 34-year-old specialist applied to become the coach of the Utah Jazz. However, it is possible that the Boston club, aiming for the title, will not impose such responsibility on the young strategist and will give the position to a better-known specialist, Frank Vogel is already mentioned among the candidates.

I. Udoka took the helm of the Boston team in 2021 and already his first season was successful – the Celtics marched to the National Basketball Association (NBA) finals, where they defeated the Golden State Warriors of San Francisco.
