Gavin Hunt has returned to the nation’s capital after he was announced as the new head coach of the Pretoria giants SuperSport United on Thursday.

The Cape Town-born Hunt was unveiled as the new coach at SuperSport’s Studio 6 in Randburg. He signed a two-year deal.

Hunt had a successful stint as SuperSport coach between 2007 and 2013, winning three consecutive Premiership titles, the first South African coach to do so.

Hunt said: “I am really excited and looking forward to the challenge ahead, especially to work with the younger players at the club and build the team to ensure the club is successful and competitive in the PSL.”


He left in 2013 after six years with SuperSport to join the now defunct Bidvest Wits, where he won his fourth league title as a coach.

After Wits, Hunt had an eight-month stint with Kaizer Chiefs from September 2020 to May last year and coached Chippa United from July to November last year.

He joined Chiefs on a three-year contract but only lasted eight months in the job. He previously coached Seven Stars, Hellenic FC, Black Leopards and Moroka Swallows.
