Randy Waldrum Named Super Falcons Head Coach
The Nigerian Football Federation has announced the appointment of Randy Waldrum as the new head coach of the senior women’s national team, known as the Super Falcons.
Waldrum, an American who played as a midfielder, has worked primarily within the American women’s soccer circle and was the 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 be the second assistant coach. Auwar Bashir Makwalla will be the goalkeeping coach.
Nigerian Football Federation President Amaju Melvin Pinnick thanked Philips Consulting, the implementers of the hiring process, and said he is confident that the new technical team will take the Super Eagles to new heights.
“The dominance of the Super Falcons on the African continent has never been in doubt, with nine titles won from the 11 editions of the AFCON women’s competitions held thus far. We envision a new Super Falcons team competing favorably for the laurels globally, and I think the new technical team led by Mr. Waldrum can take us to that level. “
