Former Kwara Falcons coach Lateef Erinfolami has been appointed head coach of the reigning champions of the Zenith Bank Women’s Basketball League, First Bank Basketball Club.
The ex-international has replaced Peter Ahmedu whose contract was not renewed at the end of last season and has since resumed duties with the Elephant Girls.
Erinfolami previously coached First Deep Water, Dolphins, Lagos Islanders, Delta Force Female Basketball Club, Kwara Falcons and Nuwaidrat Basketball Club in Bahrain.
He led Falcons to a second place finish in the finals of the 2018 Kwese Premier Basketball League in Kano.
Erinfolami has been charged to retain the Zenith Bank Women’s Basketball League and reclaim the FIBA Africa Women’s Clubs Champions Cup which the Elephant Girls last won in 2009.
First Bank Basketball Club have won the continental championship twice in 2003 in Maputo and 2009 in Cotonou.
They have finished in third place for three straight years from 2016-2018 under their former coach Peter Ahmedu.
