American Ex-footballer Appointed As New Super Falcons Coach
The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has appointed an American, Randy Waldrum as the Super Falcons head coach.
This comes nearly three years after he turned down the offer.
In December 2017, TheCable had reported how the American football manager turned down the opportunity to coach the Falcons and instead signed with the University of Pittsburg.
But on Monday, the NFF announced Waldrum’s appointment in a statement, adding that the new coach would take the senior women national team to the next level.
“The Nigeria Football Federation has announced the appointment of Mr. Randy Waldrum as the new Head Coach of the Senior Women National Team, Super Falcons,” the statement read.
“Waldrum, an American who played as a midfielder, has worked largely within the American women football circle and was head coach of the Trinidad and Tobago national team between 2014 and 2016.
“He will work with former Super Falcons’ goalkeeper and captain Ann Chiejine, who is the first Assistant Coach, while Wemimo Mathew Olanrewaju will serve as second Assistant Coach and Auwar Bashir Makwalla will be goalkeepers’ trainer.
“The predominance of the Super Falcons on the African continent has never been in doubt, with nine titles out of 11 editions of the Women AFCON competitions held so far.
“We envision a new Super Falcons squad competing favourably for laurels at the global level, and I believe the new technical crew led by Mr. Waldrum can take us to that level.”
