Nigerian champions, Kano Pillars, will begin shopping for a new head coach next week after Mohammed Baba Ganaru's exit.
According to a statement from the Kano club, Baba Ganaru's resignation as acting head coach was accepted on Saturday after an emergency meeting by the management of the Glo Premier League champions.
Baba Ganaru is said to have tendered his resignation on Friday and his exit has now paved way for Kano Pillars to open a search for a new gaffer ahead of the 2013/14 season.
His departure brings to an end a five-year spell at the Kano club including a two-year period in which he was acting head coach.
"The Kano Pillars FC board has approved the resignation of its Acting Technical Adviser Mohammed Baba Ganaru who tendered his letter of resignation to the club yesterday, 29/11/2013.
"The board approved the resignation today at an emergency meeting headed by the chairman Abba Yola at the club secretariat. They acknowledged the contributions of the former Technical Adviser for not only winning the league back-to-back but in serving the club for five years and wish him the best in his new club. Already Kano State government has directed the board to look for a new Technical Adviser without further delay," a statement from Kano Pillars read on Saturday.
Already, Baba Ganaru has agreed in principle to join rival Premier League club, Nasarawa United and it is now expected that he will complete the switch in the coming days.
