According to the SuperSport website, there has been a lot of speculation about De Villiers’s future, and negotiations for a possible rugby ambassadorial role with the government are still ongoing, but De Villiers said on Monday that he had agreed to take up the post at UWC with immediate effect.

“The university has gained a good reputation academically over the past four years and they want me to help lift the standards of their sport,” said De Villiers on Monday.

"I've been officially involved with the university since the start of the month but we are only in position to announce my involvement now. It's good to be working again and great to have a hands-on role in the sport I love. I have been impressed with the potential to grow rugby at UWC and think I can play a positive role there," he said.

De Villiers, 55, finished his contract as Springboks coach after the 2011 Rugby World Cup in New Zealand.

His autobiography, Politically Incorrect, is now available for purchase.
