Nigeria seeks new coach for men’s basketball team

The Nigeria Basketball Federation, NBBF, has declared vacant the job of coach of the men’s national team, D’Tigers.

The President of the NBBF, Tijani Umar, who stated this at the end of the federation’s board meeting on Sunday, said the board unanimously agreed to this decision after due consultation with the technical committee. The new coach to be appointed will lead the D’Tigers to the defence of their All African Games title
and the 2015 FIBA Africa Basketball championship in Tunisia.

The coaches interested in the job are to submit their application to the Nigerian Basketball Federation’s secretariat and the best candidate will be selected after interviews have been conducted, he said.

Mr. Umar said the selection will be based on merit as the team hopes to make a return to the Olympics in Rio 2016 by coming tops at the 2015 Afrobasket in Tunisia, having made their debut at the Olympics in London 2012 via the qualifying event in Venezuela.
