English outfit Bath on Tuesday confirmed Johann van Graan's coaching assistants for the 2022/23 season.
The former Springbok assistant coach signed with Bath in December and will join his new team when he concludes his season duties at Irish province Munster.
Van Graan's compatriot JP Ferreira will join him from Munster as defence coach, with the rest of the coaching contingent comprising Neal Hatley (forwards coach) and Luke Charteris (lineout).
Hatley currently serves as Bath head coach until Van Graan's arrival.
"We are pleased to confirm these appointments. Under Johann van Graan, Neal Hatley will continue as forwards coach and JP Ferreira will become defence coach after successful stints at the Lions in Johannesburg and Munster in Ireland. Luke Charteris will continue as lineout coach and a new attack coach will be confirmed imminently," Bath CEO Tarquin McDonald said in a statement.
"The current coaching unit will continue in their posts until the end of the 2021/22 season, and the club is grateful for the continuing contributions of David Williams, Mark Lilley and Ryan Davis.
"Stuart Hooper will continue in his role as director of rugby."
