Udi is the latest name being thrown into the hat as the Elephants are shopping for a substantive coach to replace Abdullahi Biffo who left unceremoniously in April.
In the absence of a head coach, the goalkeeping coach, Aminu Musa, has been in charge of the team.
Already Kadiri Ikhana had been linked to the job but he distanced himself from taking up the offer in spite of having travel with Giwa FC's squad for their league game to Port Harcourt where they drew 1-1 with Dolphins FC.
Udi has now been offered to Giwa FC by influential Nigerian sports officials, who are friends to the owner of the Jos club.
"Duke Udi is one of those who has indicated interested in becoming the coach of Giwa FC," an official of the club disclosed to Supersport.com.
"You know the club owner (Ambassador Chris Giwa) is close to a lot of people in charge of football in this country and even those at the sports ministry. So they have been talking to him about Duke Udi being a good prospect and also a former player of a number clubs in the league too. Right now there is no decision yet on who will be made the new coach."
Udi, who has played for 3SC, Kwara United, Plateau United and Sunshine Stars in the past, now holds a coaching certificate from one of the soccer associations in the United States of America.
