Former Gor Mahia coach Dylan Kerr has been appointed the new head coach of Baroka Football Club in the South African Premier League.
According to the Polokwane-based club, the Englishman has penned a three-year deal. The 52-year-old Kerr takes over from Zambian Wedson Nyirenda, who resigned last week.
Baroka FC are fighting relegation as they have recorded poor results this season, only managing to three wins in their opening 15 matches. Baroka are placed 14th in the PSL standings, with just 14 points.
Kerr guided Gor Mahia to two Kenya Premier League titles and to the group stage of the Caf Confederation Cup before quitting in November last year.
He then moved to South Africa’s Black Leopards FC, where he was in charge of only 21 matches across all competitions.
Kerr will now guide Baroka FC in the remaining 15 games this season.
