Johannesburg - Gavin Hunt has become one of the highest paid coaches in the Premier Soccer League (PSL), thanks to his monthly salary of R750 000 at new club Wits, according to a report on the Sowetanlive website.

Hunt quit SuperSport United on Wednesday to join The Clever Boys where he was given a signing-on fee of R10 million.

He has signed a three-year deal with an option to renew for another 12 months.

Hunt played fullback for now defunct Cape Town club Hellenic, before launching his coaching career by taking Seven Stars to the Premier League.

Spells at other top-flight sides Hellenic, Black Leopards and Moroka Swallows followed, before he succeeded Pitso Mosimane and led SuperSport United to three consecutive Premiership titles between 2007 to 2010.

"It's a very difficult time for me. I'm doing this with a very heavy heart," said Hunt, who spent six years with the Pretoria outfit.

"In this business, as we all know, maybe a change would be good for me. I will forever be indebted to this club."
