NFF Begins Search for New Super Falcons Coach
September 12, 2023
The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has begun the search for a new head coach for the Super Falcons following the expiration of Randy Waldrum’s contract.
Waldrum led the Super Falcons to the Round of 16 at the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup in August.
The NFF has, however, decided not to offer the American an extension despite the Super Falcons’ impressive showing in Australia and New Zealand.
Waldrum was involved in a bitter discord with the NFF in the build up to the competition.
“The NFF Board resolved to be thorough and ensure meritocracy in the composition of new coaching crews for the various Women National Teams (Super Falcons, Falconets and Flamingos) within the shortest possible time, as the Super Falcons and Falconets have crucial qualifying fixtures for major championships in a matter of weeks,” the football house said in statement following its annual general assembly meeting in Uyo, Akwa Ibom capital, on Sunday.
The Super Falcons will take on Ethiopia in an Olympic qualifier next month.
