Suspended Boston Celtics head coach Ime Udoka and longtime partner Nia Long have officially split in the wake of the scandal that led to his suspension by the Celtics after it was revealed Udoka had been having an inappropriate relationship with a female team staffer according to a report from People’s Joelle Goldstein and Lanae Brody.
Per the report, the former couple are “no longer together but remain fully committed to co-parenting their son (Kez).”
The news comes just days after Long spoke to the media about the situation for the first time since it exploded into public view in September.

“The situation is unfortunate and painful, but Nia is focusing on her children and rebuilding her life,” related the source to People.
Udoka is widely seen as unlikely to return to coach the Celtics given how seriously the organization is taking the incident as well as the success of interim head coach Joe Mazzulla.
