Ime Udoka Career And Dating History
Ime Udoka was born in 1977 and started his professional basketball career by playing in the NBDL. He was the Assitant Coach of the Brooklyn Nets before joining as the Head Coach of the Boston Celtics.
We checked his dating history, but we couldn’t find anyone other than Nia Long. He is 6 years younger then his wife Nia Long and they have been in a relationship since 2010.
After a rocky start in which the Celtics were in danger of missing the playoffs last season, Udoka led the team to the NBA Finals in his first season. He also finished fourth in the Coach of The Year vote. He has earned the trust and respect of his players through his demanding and disciplined style based on responsibility.
But things seems to be turned against Udoku after he was involved in a consensual and intimate relationship with one of the Boston Celtics staff member.
It’s unclear which Celtics assistant would replace Udoka if he is suspended. Will Hardy, Boston’s top assistant last season, would have been the obvious choice, but in June he was named the Jazz’s head coach.
Ben Sullivan managed Boston’s Las Vegas summer league team in July and was an assistant for the Bucks when they won the NBA title in 2021. Joe Mazzulla, seen as a rising coach, was interviewed for the Utah opening before being promoted to a bench role on Udoka’s staff this summer.
