The coaching merry-go-round at Chippa United was in full swing again as Duran Francis was sacked as reported by Briefly.co.za on Monday.
Francis only had two matches at the helm when chairman Siviwe Mpengesi pressed the panic button.
Assistant coach Mbuyiselo Sambu has taken over on an interim basis, but the club have now appointed a new head coach in the form of Norman Mapeza.
The Zimbabwean was previously in charge at FC Platinum based in his home country, but parted ways with them a few weeks ago.
TimesLIVE reported that Mapeza has signed a three-year deal at the Chilli Boys.
Although Mapeza flew down to Port Elizabeth, he still awaits his work permit before the work can officially begin.
Briefly.co.za understands that Mpengesi oozed confidence when asked about his new coach.
The chairman said, ""He brings a wealth of experience that will no doubt inspire the players and take the team to greater heights.”
