Former NBA player Ime Udoka has a successful coaching career spanning nearly a decade, including his performance as an assistant coach for the San Antonio Spurs, Philadelphia 76ers and Brooklyn Nets before joining the Boston Celtics as head coach.
Following a recent incident, the Celtics suspended Udoka for one season!
What did the Celtics coach do to get suspended?
The Nigerian-American manager recently made headlines for his intimate relationship with a Celtics coaching staff resulting in the violation of the Celtics’ code of conduct resulting in his suspension for the remainder of the 2022-23 season.
Who is the woman Udoka had an affair with?
No source has yet officially confirmed a name regarding the romantic involvement with the Celtics head coach, but few names are floating around. Rumor has it that Allison Feaster, the former American basketball player and vice president of player development and organization for the Boston Celtics, was the woman Udoka had a “consensual” relationship with. Although Richard Jefferson questioned the credibility, tweeting, “Ask if it’s consensual then why the suspension and duration!!!”
However, Feaster is not the only name associated with this incident. Some sources suggest that Kathleen Nimmo Lynch, the Boston Celtics’ team services manager, is the very woman Udoka had an extramarital affair with. Kathleen’s mysterious disappearance from social media and the sudden deletion of her LinkedIn profile following the incident has raised many questions.
Udoka, however, does not deny the allegations made against him. He said: “I want to apologize to our players, our fans, the entire Celtics organization and my family for letting them down; I am sorry to have put the team in this difficult situation and I accept the team’s decision,” the statement continued. “Out of respect for everyone involved, I will have no further comment,” he added.
