The woman accused of having an affair with Boston Celtics head coach Ime Udoka has been spotted wearing her wedding and engagement rings four months after their tryst was reported.
Celtics team service manager Kathleen Nimmo Lynch, 34, was seen Tuesday sporting what appears to be her wedding ring on her left hand while out with her children.
The relationship between the coach and Lynch resulted in a suspension and Udoka broke off his nearly 13-year relationship with actor Nia Long, with whom he shares an 11-year-old son named Kez.
The Celtics never confirmed Lynch, a ‘devout Mormon’ and mother-of-three, was the employee Udoka had been sleeping with but her name was leaked online.
The team liaison was responsible for arranging travel, lodging, and game tickets for Celtics family members, likely including Long.

Ime Udoka and Nia Long split in the fall after a nearly eight-year engagement
The married mother’s ring sparkles in the sunlight as she reins her kids in Boston in new photos, indicating her marriage survived the scandal involving Ime Udoka.
Lynch is seen handling multiple backpacks and notebooks while sporting loungewear and moccasins with her hair pulled back and heavy black sunglasses covering her eyes.
In October, a source familiar with the investigation into Udoka’s affair said the relationship was ‘short lived’ and consensual.
Udoka and Long’s nearly 13-year relationship and eight-year engagement did not survive the affair, however, and the couple officially split in the fall.
In an interview at the end of January, Long – promoting her new Netflix film ‘You People’ – spoke out about being ‘so single’ after the end of her relationship.
The 52-year-old actress told Drew Barrymore she has been dating and that it’s nothing serious.
Long denied a relationship with Omarion, who she had been pictured next to on a red carpet, but said she does have a crush on someone at the moment.
‘I have my eye on one person. I’m not saying. I’m never telling,’ she said.

Last year, DailyMail.com reported that Lynch was a friend of former Celtics player Danny Ainge, 63, who helped her secure her position with the team.
Ainge is a fellow Mormon and Lynch went to Brigham Young University with his daughter.
She graduated in 2011 and was later hired by the Celtics, working under Ainge who was the chief of basketball operations at the time.
Ainge allegedly learned about the affair between Lynch and Udoka in the summer of 2021 but did not intervene.
The investigation into their affair resulted in Udoka being suspended for the remainder of the 2022-23 season.
Lynch did not face disciplinary action over the situation.
