De Villiers still out of work
23 December 2006 11:34am
Peter de Villiers is hoping Santa will grant him his greatest wish this Christmas - a coaching job for 2007.
He was due to join up with the Southern Spears in the Super 14 in 2007, but this has been put on ice.
And now the highly-rated coach is facing the prospect of going into the new year unemployed.
"There are no prospects for me for next year," De Villiers told Die Burger Oos Kaap newspaper.
"It seems someone thinks I am capable of coaching a team!"
However, without a team it looks likely De Villiers will head overseas if nothing materialises at the start of the new campaign.
The amiable coach was believed to be in line for Jake White's job when the Bok mentor came under pressure at the end of the season, but White kept his job.
De Villiers' assistant, Dumisani Mhani, recently helped with the coaching of the Zambian national side which played in the African Confederation competition.
