Nigerian NBA coach Ime Udoka faces disciplinary action for cheating on his wife with a co-worker
Ime Udoka allegedly cheated on his wife Nia Long with a Boston Celtics employee
Ime Udoka, who is married to Hollywood star Nia Long, is now in trouble for having an affair with a Boston Celtics employee
Boston Celtics head coach Ime Udoka is facing serious disciplinary action for violating the franchise’s code of conduct, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
According to Charania’s report, Udoka allegedly had an indecent, intimate and consensual relationship with a female team member.
The 45-year-old Nigerian has been married to Hollywood actress Nia Long since 2010, which makes his alleged behaviour even more puzzling.
ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski had previously reported that Ime Udoka was facing disciplinary action, which is expected to include a substantial suspension for an unspecified breach of organisational policy.
Now that the nature of his violation is public knowledge, it is unclear what the nature of his punishment will be, which the Boston Celtics are expected to announce on Thursday.
ESPN reports that the Celtics are expected to make a decision on the length of the suspension as early as Thursday, but it is not believed that Udoka’s job is in jeopardy.
Ime Udoka joined the Celtics last summer and became the first Nigerian coach in the NBA. He made history by becoming the first head coach to reach the NBA Finals in his first year.
Udoka is expected to be replaced by Celtics assistant Joe Mazzulla on an interim basis once his suspension from the team becomes official.
