D’Tigress Coach Threatens To Quit Over Unpaid Wages.


D’Tigress head coach Otis Hughley may quit from his role with the Nigerian women’s basketball team because of unpaid bonuses, reports.

Hughley who took a swipe at the country’s sports ministry also demanded a contract review if he must continue on the job.

“I love Nigeria and I want to see them win the World Championship or [a] gold medal on the world stage,” Hughley said.

“Sadly, I am owed for the World Cup qualifying tournament in Serbia and the Olympics. I have tried all I can but I can’t continue to do it for free.

“The ministry said they will look into it and try to pay me the money we talked about since the Olympics. I am still waiting – no words from anyone.

“I am not sure my wife will allow me to continue to do this. I don’t live there but I love the girls, I love the team, I love what we have done.”

The former assistant coach with NBA side Sacramento Kings has been largely successful with Nigeria since taking over the team from Sam Vincent in 2018.

He led D’Tigress to eighth place at the Fiba Women’s World Cup! the best performance by an African side, qualified for the 2020 Tokyo Games and back-to-back African women’s basketball titles were followed by 2022 World Cup qualification, which included an historic win over France.

Hughley isn’t alone in the mess,  D’Tigress players have also been locked in a dispute with the NBBF and sports ministry over the non-payment of bonuses and organisational issues encountered during the Olympics in Japan.
