Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting Boston Celtics head coach Ime Udoka could be suspended for the 2022-2023 season. An announcement from the team is expected later today.
According to multiple sources, Udoka was engaged in a consensual intimate relationship with a female Celtics staff member. The organization has deemed this a violation of the club’s personal conduct policy.
Assistant coach Joe Mazzulla has been identified as the leading interim head coach candidate. Mazzulla has been with the team since 2019.
Boston will host its annual media day on Monday, and training camp is set to begin on Tuesday.
Assistant coach Joe Mazzulla is likely to become Boston's interim coach for the season, sources tell ESPN. https://t.co/GKEiMemnFN
