The former Bidvest Wits manager has finally agreed terms with the Soweto giants ahead of the 2020/21 season, with an official announcement expected from the club later today.
KickOff.com understands from a source close to the move that a deal has been signed after Hunt’s representatives met with the club’s hierarchy to finalise the terms of his contract.
Chiefs have been searching for a new head coach since the sacking of the Germany’s Middendorp with Hunt, Algeria’s Adel Amerouche and former Bafana Bafana coach Stuart Baxter all understood to have been contacted for the role.
The move marks Hunt’s seventh club since his first managerial role with Seven Stars back in 1995 and with eight major titles won during his 25-year coaching career, silverware will be expected to follow for Amakhosi as he makes the move to Naturena.
