Article Summary:

After an extensive search, the Celtics have filled their coaching vacancy as the club is finalizing an agreement to hire Brooklyn Nets assistant Ime Udoka as their new head coach, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

In Boston, Udoka will serve as the successor to Brad Stevens, who coached the team from 2013 through this past season. Udoka’s vast experience as an assistant, along with the fact that Celtics players were impressed with him after playing for him on the U.S. national team in the 2019 World Cup tournament, were major factors in his hiring, per Wojnarowski.

In addition to his coaching credentials, Udoka also has ample experience as a player.
