Ime Udoka is a Nigerian-American professional basketball coach and former player who is the head coach for the Boston Celtics of the National Basketball Association.

Ime Udoka, the head coach of the Boston Celtics, will likely face severe punishment for his involvement in an intimate relationship with a woman who works for the team, according to ESPN on Wednesday night.

The relationship was deemed a violation of the organization’s policies, and a decision on the length of the suspension is expected as soon as Thursday, according to sources.

While no final decision has been made, sources said that internal discussions have included scenarios that would keep Udoka out for the entire 2022-23 season.

It isn’t believed that Udoka’s job is in jeopardy, sources said.

Will Hardy, Udoka’s top assistant coach, left to become coach of the Utah Jazz, and another Jazz finalist, Celtics assistant Joe Mazzulla, is expected to be seriously considered for an interim role, according to ESPN.

Udoka joined the Celtics last summer after working as an assistant coach with the San Antonio Spurs, Philadelphia 76ers, and Brooklyn Nets following his NBA playing career.

Udoka replaced Brad Stevens as a coach. Stevens moved upstairs to be Boston’s president of basketball operations after his predecessor in that job, Danny Ainge, chose to leave the organization.

Udoka oversaw a remarkable turnaround in Boston in his first season as coach, leading the Celtics from being under.500 in late January to finishing the season with a 28-7 record over the final 35 games.

They then dominated the Eastern Conference playoffs, advancing to the NBA Finals for the first time in 12 years.

Udoka is the fifth coach in the past 25 years to reach the NBA Finals in his first season as a head coach, and the first since Nick Nurse in 2019.
