Boston Celtics head coach Ime Udoka is considering resigning amid reports that he faces a year-long suspension for cheating with a married woman.
Udoka faces disciplinary action for engaging in an intimate “improper” relationship with a married female staffer.
He was reportedly warned multiple times to end his workplace romance.
ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski broke the news Wednesday night, around 10:30 p.m., in a vague tweet.
About an hour before Woj tweeted his scoop, a burner account mentioned that Udoka would never be fired for “sleeping around.”
The insider suggested that Udoka was carrying on with multiple women, not just one female staffer.
The tweet, posted at 9:14 p.m. EST, read: “if there’s one person who will never get fired for sleeping around, it’s ime udoka.”

Udoka, 45, is in a longterm relationship with fiancée Nia Long, 51.
The rookie coach led the Celtics to a 51-31 record and the team’s first NBA Finals since 2010.
Celtics assistant coach Joe Mazzulla will replace Udoka when training camp begins on Tuesday, Sept. 27.
