Ex-D’Tigers ace becomes first Nigerian head coach in NBA

Former D’Tigers ace Ime Udoka has been appointed the new coach for Boston Celtics in the NBA.

Udoka had been considered a front-runner for the job, as ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported last Friday that he was among the candidates, who received second interviews.

Udoka, 43, spent seven years on Gregg Popovich’s staff in San Antonio, including the 2013-14 season, when the Spurs won the NBA title.
