Skip Bayless believes this opportunity was a long time coming for Ime Udoka.
Udoka on Wednesday reportedly was hired as the new head coach of the Boston Celtics. The 43-year-old comes to Boston with plenty of NBA coaching experience, as well as a brief history with the Celtics’ current franchise cornerstones.
“Congrats, Celtics Nation, on hiring Ime Udoka,” Bayless tweeted Wednesday. “I have long believed he has all the right traits to become a great head coach. I was amazed no one hired him all those years he was Pop’s lead assistant. Players love/respect him. Commanding presence. Great fit for these Celts.”
