    Coetzee snubs Boks for WP

    2012-02-20 07:41
    Cape Town - Stormers and Western Province head coach Allister Coetzee has signed a new contract to stay in Cape Town until 2015 and has turned down the opportunity to join Heyneke Meyer’s new Springbok coaching staff, according to Eyewitness News.

    This will be confirmed by the union on Monday afternoon.

    Coetzee, a former assistant with the national team under Jake White, was thought to be a candidate for the top job before losing out to Meyer.

    It is understood that he was approached by the former Bulls director of coaching to join his staff but after lengthy consideration, declined.

    This latest move will then see the coaching team of Coetzee, Robbie Fleck and Matthew Proudfoot remain in place and is a welcomed boost ahead of their Super Rugby season opener against the Hurricanes at Newlands on Saturday.
