Coach Theodore ‘Tappa’ Whitmore signed a four-year deal with the Jamaica Football Federation (JFF) on Monday, which will start on June 1 and ends December 31, 2022.
According to a release by the JFF, the deal was completed after a meeting between the JFF and the coach, which was led by the president of the governing body.
The signature comes after Whitmore resigned as head coach of Jamaica’s national football team, the Reggae Boyz, on April 6, over protracted salary negotiations.
It also followed meetings between the JFF, Whitmore and Minister of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport, Olivia ‘Babsy’ Grange, which resulted in the coach withdrawing his resignation letter on April 13.
According to the JFF release, both the JFF and Whitmore are satisfied with the terms and conditions of the new contract and “now look forward to planning and executing on preparation for the senior team’s engagement in upcoming games and tournament”.
