Boston Celtics coach Ime Udoka had an intimate and consensual relationship with a female member of the team’s staff, sources told The Athletic on Wednesday.

Udoka is facing possible discipline for a violation of organizational policy, sources said. ESPN first reported that Udoka was facing a potential suspension.

Udoka, 45, is heading into his second season at the helm in Boston after taking over for Brad Stevens, who became president of basketball operations. 

The Celtics went 51-31 in the regular season last year and made it to the NBA Finals. Udoka was previously an assistant coach with the San Antonio Spurs, Philadelphia 76ers and Brooklyn Nets.
