Ime Udoka made rude comments that led to a one-year suspension: report


A significant factor in Boston Celtics coach Ime Udoka’s one-year suspension was his foul language with a female staffer before beginning a relationship with her, according to a new report.

Udoka’s dialogue was considered especially troubling coming from someone with such power in the organization.

Not only is Udoka suspended for the 2022-23 season, but the finding of the law firm’s investigation will make it more difficult for him to be reinstated after the season.

According to ESPNthe relationship was the primary finding and policy violation of the investigation by the independent law firm that commissioned the team.

Celtics owner Wyc Grousbeck said last week that the suspension came after a months-long investigation.

“We found out over the summer, part of the summer, that there was a situation,” Grousbeck said last week. “I called the law firm at that time and the investigation had some twists and turns and it took some time to develop all the facts. It was finally concluded, for now, everything we know was closed two days ago…

“I took a lot of advice from partners like [Celtics president of basketball operations Brad Stevens] and others. We collectively got to this and got there, but it wasn’t clear what to do. But it was clear that something substantial had to be done, in my opinion, and it was done.”
