Celtics Told Head Coach Ime Udoka To Stop Having Relationships With Staff; Had Not 1 But 2! One Of Them Was Married To Celtics Employee (Kathleen Lynch)

Written by TrevStone

If you haven’t heard the news yet Boston Celtics head coach Ime Udoka is going to be suspended by the team for the entire season. (Now official) Udoka apparently had a relationship with someone within the Celtics organization and was told by the Celtics not to do this.

Crazy thing about it? He continued. Not only with one female. But he had a relationship with two different women within the organization and one of them was allegedly married to a former Celtics employee. Taylor Lynch, husband of Kathleen Nimmo Lynch, previously worked with Boston Celtics.

Both women apparently had consensual sex with him. Nothing was illegal. Boston doing this is a little shocking, especially for an entire season. Longer suspension than Deshaun Watson got. And we all know what happened there. You’d think at that point they’d move on from him. But after making it to the NBA championship that’s going to be hard to do.

One of the women have apparently been identified for the most part as Kathleen Lynch. Lynch apparently deleted her social media a couple of days ago knowing that the news was going to come.

Kathleen Nimmo Lynch is the team service manager of the Boston Celtics. The 33-year-old has been appointed with the NBA franchise for more than seven years. She graduated from Brigham Young University with a degree in Science in 2006 and then went on to pursue her studies in Richmond, the American International University in London.

Before working at Boston Celtics, Kathleen worked as a market coordinator at Massachusetts General Hospital. Though she had a LinkedIn account previously, it has now been shut down.

It sure seems like Celtics GM Brad Stevens is making it known that he isn’t standing for this making this a year suspension. It isn’t the fact there is any legal trouble; this must be just a moral thing. And something that Boston doesn’t want inside of the organization. I guess it doesn’t help that he was in a long-time relationship and so are these women who were married. Will they also be suspended for a year? Or will all blame be passed onto the guy who is supposed to be leading the ship? It seems like that’ll more than likely be the case.

Oh well. I don’t care.

… allegedly this is what happened…

What else do we know about Kathleen Lynch?
