The Boston Celtics club stated on September 22 that the professional basketball coach
who has been engaged to actress Nia Long since 2015
has been removed from his position as head coach.
Due to "violations of team policies," Udoka was suspended for the 2022–2023 season, effective immediately
according to a statement from the Celtics.
A decision about his employment with the Celtics after this season will be made at a later time, it was noted.
After hearing the news, Udoka spoke with ESPN reporter Malika Andrews and apologised for the incident.
I'm sorry for disappointing our team, fans, the whole Celtics organisation, and my family, the player added. I'm sorry I put the crew in this challenging situation.
