Official: Chiefs Announce Baxter As New Coach

Kaizer Chiefs have announced Stuart Baxter as their new coach.

The Englishman returns to Naturena for a second time following his stint between 2012 and 2015.

Baxter is the last Chiefs coach to win a trophy and won two league trophies as well as two knockout titles with the Glamour Boys.

He replaces Gavin Hunt who was sacked by Chiefs on 28 May.

The four-time Premiership champion departed Amakhosi after winning just two of his last 16 league games, while he’s only collected 12 victories in 44 games overall.

His points-per-game average dropped to a worrying 1.20 – the worst of any of the recent Chiefs coaches.

Baxter, meanwhile, can boast an impressive 2.03 points-per-game from his first stint at Naturena, winning 66 of his 110 matches in charge.
