Celtics coach Ime Udoka could face suspension for dating a staff member

It is possible that Udoka will be sidelined for the whole season for “consensual and intimate relationship”, according to the sports channel.

Athletic have independently confirmed the report with sources, who said the relationship was a “violation of organizational policy”.

Udoka’s job is unlikely to be in permanent jeopardy, according to ESPN.

During his first year as head coach last season, Udoka guided the Celtics to the NBA Finals for the first time in 12 years.

A video of Udoka’s girlfriend, actor Nia Long, dancing after the team qualified for the championship has gone viral.

The Celtics lost to the Golden State Warriors in six games in the NBA Finals.

The team did not immediately respond to HuffPost’s request for comment.
