NFF named Randy Waldrum as Super Falcons coach

The Nigeria Football Federation has named Randy Jordan Waldrum as the new Head Coach of the Senior Women National Team, Super Falcons.

The America international makes a return after turning down the job offer in October, 2017.

He replaces Swedish Coach
Thomas Dennerby, who left his role in 2019 after taking the Super Falcons to the round of 16 of the FIFA Women’s World Cup hosted in France in 2019.

Waldrum, played as a midfielder, has been involved with the American women football circle and was also the head coach of the Trinidad and Tobago national team between 2014 and 2016.

The 64-year-old started his coaching career at Austin College in 1982, 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.

President of the Nigeria Football Federation, Mr. Amaju Melvin Pinnick thanked Philips Consulting, the executors of the recruitment process, and said he has confidence that the new technical crew will take the Super Eagles to brand new heights.

“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.”
