Hunt had previously denied being in talks with Chiefs management when Phakaaathi contacted him for a comment after Middendorp was dropped by the club.

The four-time league title winning coach, however, was unveiled as a new Chiefs coach on Thursday.

Chiefs supporters, who were unhappy when the club rehired Middendorp, seem to be happy with Hunt’s appointment, with some believing that Hunt will lead the club back to its former glory days.
