Austin Eguavoen has stepped down as Super Eagles head coach following the failure of Nigeria to qualify for the 2022 World Cup.
Eguavoen has sent an official resignation letter to the NFF, according to a report by Brilla FM.
The sports radio said Eguavoen will now return to his role as Technical Director of all national teams.
The NFF had handed a two-year contract to Eguavoen two days before the first leg of the World Cup play-off against Ghana.
It is now clear that the Super Eagles will soon have a new coach.
Meanwhile, an official statement by the NFF’s General Secretary, Dr Mohammed Sanusi, said the football federation has disengaged the entire Super Eagles’ Technical Crew.
According to the statement, the decision is following the failure of the Super Eagles of Nigeria to qualify for the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
Parts of the statement reads;
“The NFF has in the meantime withdrawn the two-and-half years contract offered the coaches and terminated the appointment of the entire technical crew of the team with immediate effect. A new crew will be announced after a proper review.
“We thank the coaches and team officials for their service to the nation and wish them success in their future endeavours,” said NFF General Secretary, Dr Mohammed Sanusi.
