Boston Celtics head coach Ime Udoka released a statement for the first time since news broke of his recently-confirmed suspension, acknowledging the situation without adding new details of note to an already-murky situation surrounding the unnamed violation of team policy that has been reported as a “consensual relationship” with a female employee of the team.
“I want to apologize to our players, fans, the entire Celtics organization, and my family for letting them down,” Udoka began in a tweet circulated by ESPN’s Malika Andrews. “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,” he added.
