BBC reports that NFF just fired Samson Siasia as the Super Eagles coach.

Samson Siasia has been fired as Nigeria coach for failing to take the country to the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations, BBC Sport understands.
The executive committee of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) ratified the decision to sack the coach on Friday.
This comes after the NFF's technical committee recommended the dismissal of the former international.
Siasia came under huge pressure after the Super Eagles failed to qualify for the continent's flagship tournament.
Three weeks ago the Super Eagles had failed to qualify for a Nations Cup finals for the first time since the 1986 edition in Egypt.
