Celtics coach Ime Udoka is reportedly at risk of suspension for his romance with Staffer

It’s possible that Udoka will be sidelined for the entire season because of the “consensual, intimate relationship,” according to the sports network.

The Athletic independently corroborated the report with sources saying the relationship was a “violation of organizational policy”.

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

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

A video of Udoka’s friend, actress Nia Long, dancing after the team’s promotion to the championship went 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.
