The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has appointed former Trinidad and Tobago women national team coach, Randy Waldrum, as technical adviser for the Super Falcons
The country’s women’s national team has been without a coach since August when Florence Omagbemi’s contract expired.
Waldrum, an American born in Texas, was recommended by the Technical and Development Committee and endorsed by the FA board on Thursday during a meeting in Jos, Plateau State.
“The Board approved the recommendation of the Technical and Development Committee for the appointment of Mr. Randy Waldrum as Technical Adviser of the Super Falcons, and directed the Secretariat to immediately conclude negotiations with Mr. Waldrum,” a statement from the Glass House read.
The 61-year-old coach has a track record of managing female university teams and recently managed National Women’s Soccer League side, Houston Dash.
Waldrum’s immediate task is to defend the Africa Women Cup of Nations in Ghana next year.
