Waldrum was former Trinidad and Tobago women's coach for two years before he was fired. Also, he handled US National Women's Soccer League side Houston Dash before he was relieved of his post following poor run of results.

His task will begin against either Burkina Faso or Gambia in the second round qualifying match of the 2018 Africa Women Cup of Nations in February.

Waldrum will not only hope to lead the team to continental success in Ghana next year and secure automatic qualification for the 2019 Fifa Women's World Cup in France.
