Div Lands New Job
Former Springbok coach Peter de Villiers has landed a new position after months in the South African rugby wilderness.
De Villiers on Monday confirmed that he has taken up the position of director of rugby at the University of Western Cape 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.”
De Villiers added that negotiations between him and the government for a possible rugby ambassadorial role are still ongoing.
