I mean how do you come back and get back control of your team after an entire year suspension? By that time might as well move on if it's so egregious he can't show up for a year...

Most of the time, people know exactly what they're doing, and they're in control of themselves.

A lot of times cheating and risky sex is the turn on, it's not the sex. Especially for powerful people, when you've kind of gone through life, are struggling to find things that really get you going.

Has a coach ever been suspended a year this early into their career? In the NFL Sean Payton was suspended a year but at that point he was still their best option as a coach. But I can't see him being on a long leash after this. This was supposed to be a championship year

SAS just went on a big rant about this. People love to shit on him but I kind of agreed with him for the most part. Basically if this werent the head coach of the celtics who just went to the NBA finals hed be fired and nobody would have heard about it. Either fire him or don't do anything. This is clearly for optics because the details will probably come out either way so the celtics need to act like they are doing something instead of not doing anything even though he broke org rules.

Yeah, Celtics should have gone with the Red Sox approach. Fire the coach for a year while he's suspended for awful violations, then just re-hire him a year later when he's sorry. It's been working out great. Genius strategy.

They can't do that approach because 2023 is not an election year so they can't use the election news dump strategy which is what the Red Sox did with Cora.

At that point, you may as well fire the coach.

What’s the likelihood someone tries to poach him while on suspension? Hell, there are teams in the same division (Philly, Brooklyn) that would kill to have him replace their current coaches.

Edit: contract reasons. don’t have to pay him if he resigns voluntarily. Guess the Celtics don’t believe the partnership is worth salvaging. Thanks, u/junkit33 and u/bigbadbuck

Super close comparison. Both Minority coaches beloved by their team and very respected around their league. Both are fairly young and former players. And Both got caught in controversy early in their career (Astros cheating scandal, affair). I could totally see Ime coming back after a year and after a few months of questioning from media, just get back to being a well respected good coach.

He will still be under contract perhaps?

But yes, the real question is, what is so out of bounds that requires a YEAR suspension but does not warrant a firing?

And having the team play a full season under and interim is playing with fire.

It’s basically what the Red Sox did with Cora. Most people assumed he’d be back. Totally different issues but it’s a decent parallel considering they’re both Boston. Only problem here is the Celtics have high aspirations. Red Sox weren’t expected to be that good that year (also Covid shortened but they didn’t know that when Cora left).

This is basically forcing him to resign without giving him the permanent stink of a firing. Even if he returns in a year he's totally lost face in that organization, so he would probably rather just bow out gracefully and seek a fresh start elsewhere in a year.

A lot of people don’t understand if you’re at the top of any organization, business or corporation, there are very very stringent rules regarding dating in the work place. Usually they can not work anywhere near your department, you have to disclose the relationship to HR, and it couldn’t have started while they were working under you. This is to limit exploitation and favoritism. The rules make sense, he’s a dumbass for breaking them.

It's got nothing to do with him cheating on his wife though. You can't be the boss and go sleeping with people that work for you. It's code of conduct for any respectable company. You can't put subordinates in that position where they might feel pressured to consent for fear of retaliation, or to advance their careers. Likewise, you might create the notion with other employees that they are getting passed over for opportunities because someone else is sleeping with the boss. You just can't have that in a healthy organization.

I married my boss. We've been happily married for years and have 2 kids. I'm really glad she didn't get fired. Granted, Udoka's situation isn't a 1:1 because I think Udoka was cheating on his spouse if I got the story right, but part of the reason people "don't understand" is because a lot of people meet their spouse or longterm partners at work. That's also not to say a boss in a position of power can't be a creep trying to leverage a relationship.

Lol people really pretending that a boss having a sexual relationship with a subordinate is fine if she consents?

It's a fireable offense in most companies, a normal executive wouldn't even get off with only a suspension if he's caught having sex with a junior employee.

Yeah I don’t really get how people don’t get this. Sex between a boss and a subordinate is messy. Can lead to issues with power dynamic, the concept of consent, lawsuits down the road, etc.

It’s not uncommon to get fired for that, not just suspended. Sex between low level employees on the same level isn’t as big a deal.

Yeah the immaturity of this sub is kinda showing with this one. It’s common as hell in any workplace with a clearly structured hierarchy that relationships between bosses and subordinates will result in termination or a big punishment. I see a lot of people here trying to frame it as whoever he slept with being some big name or having a connection to a big name but it’s far more likely it’s a lower level no name frankly

The man had a relationship with an employee. He's the head coach. Power imbalance. And if it wasn't reported? Violation of most workplace codes of conduct. And it was extramarital? Creates negative perception about the man and the event. Not to mention the PR crisis the team will face, how many times will we ever be able to bring up Udoka on social media, ever again, without someone chiming in about this affair, in a crude way most likely? I feel like a year long suspension really shows that the organization takes this seriously, it gives Udoka the time he will need to deal with his certain personal issues that stem from this. It gives the locker room time to move past it and ensure their trust in their coach (though I feel most of the players wouldn't really have cared that much). A year is heavy, but the team is serious about it and he's probably lucky not to have been fired.
