Last week, the Boston Celtics finally found a new head coach to replace Brad Stevens. This is Ime Udoka, who was just one of the Brooklyn Nets’ assistant coaches.
Udoka is also engaged to Nia Long, one of the most popular actresses in pop culture. They’ve been together for 10 years, and are getting ready to get married soon. In the meantime, Long is celebrating Udoka’s huge career accomplishment with the Boston hire.
On Monday, Long was seen in a white and green Celtics jersey, with the number 18 on it. The 18 symbolizes Udoka being the Celtics’ 18th head coach in franchise history.
Boston finished the regular season 36-36, and seventh in the Eastern Conference. They ended up falling to the Nets in the first round of the playoffs, in six games.
