Boston Celtics majority owner Wyc Grousbeck said Friday that the season-long suspension of head coach Ime Udoka came after an outside investigation turned up "substantial" evidence that Udoka had violated team rules.

The suspension was the result of what ESPN reported was a consensual relationship with an unidentified female staff member. Grousbeck and team president Brad Stevens addressed the media Friday but did not confirm the reason for the suspension.
