Nigerian NBA coach Ime Udoka faces disciplinary measures for cheating on his wife, Nia Long with staff member


Ime Udoka, who is married to Hollywood actress Nia Long, is currently in hot water for having an illicit relationship with a female employee of the Boston Celtics organization.

According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, Ime Udoka, the head coach of the Boston Celtics, is expected to receive substantial disciplinary action for breaking the team’s code of conduct.

According to Charania’s investigation, Udoka allegedly had an inappropriate, intimate, and consenting connection with a female employee of the team.

 Ime Udoka faces disciplinary measures

The 45-year-old Nigerian has been married to Hollywood actress Nia Long since 2010 which makes his reported behaviour even more puzzling.




ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported earlier that Ime Udoka is facing disciplinary action that is expected to include a significant suspension for an unspecified violation of organisational guidelines.

Now that the nature of his violation is public information, it is unclear what the nature of his punishment would be as the Boston Celtics are expected to announce on Thursday.

ESPN reports that the Celtics are expected to come to a decision on the length of that suspension as soon as Thursday, but it isn’t believed that Udoka’s job is in jeopardy.

Ime Udoka joined the Celtics last summer, becoming the first Nigerian coach in the NBA and made history by becoming the first head coach to make the NBA finals in his first year in charge.

Udoka is expected to be replaced by Celtics assistant Joe Mazzulla on an interim basis when his suspension from the team becomes official.
