It has been confirmed by the Bulls that SA Director of Rugby Rassie Erasmus will be a part of the process in selecting a new coach.
Following the departure of 2018’s head coach John Mitchell, the Bulls are in the process of finding a new coach for the 2019 season. High performance manager Xander Janse van Rensburg has now confirmed that earlier reports that Erasmus would be a part of the coach selection process.
“Rassie and his management staff will help us as we finalise our appointments, and be responsible to just oversee and facilitate the process to ensure we stay on track… They will be available after the Bok end-of-year tour.”
Other reports earlier in the year rumoured that Erasmus could be in line to coach the Bulls and Springboks simultaneously next year, however he confirmed these to merely be rumours, saying instead that he would be spending some time with the Bulls in the RWC year if they were to be working with a new coach.
