American coach Randy Waldrum has said NO to the Super Falcons job.
The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) had earlier appointed the former Trinidad and Tobago coach as the Super Falcons’ Technical Adviser only for him to turn down the position in favour of another job.
Waldrum, 61, applied for the vacant Super Falcons job and was subsequently recommended by the NFF technical committee with subject to further negotiations.
The latest development represents the second time in 18 months that a foreign coach will reject a coaching offer from the NFF after Frenchman Paul Le Guen did the same thing with the Super Eagles job in June 2016.
Instead of the Falcons job, Randy Waldrum decided to take the head coach job with the University of Pittsburgh women’s soccer team.
Heather Lake, the University’s director of Athletics while confirming the appointment via the team’s website said: “We are thrilled to announce Randy Waldrum as our head women’s soccer coach at the University of Pittsburgh.”
In his acceptance speech, Waldrum said: “I would like to thank Heather Lyke for giving me this wonderful opportunity to lead the women’s soccer program at the University of Pittsburgh.”
