Nia Long‘s fiancé and Boston Celtics coach Ime Udoka has issued an apology after allegedly having an affair with a female staffer.
“I want to apologize to our players, fans, the entire Celtics organization, and my family for letting them down,” he said in a statement to ESPN.
Udoka, who was suspended from his duties as head coach for the 2022-23 season, added, “I am sorry for putting the team in this difficult situation, and I accept the team’s decision. Out of respect for everyone involved, I will have no further comment.”
The Boston Celtics suspended the NBA coach “for violations of team policies,” they said in a statement. “A decision about his future with the Celtics beyond this season will be made at a later date.”
