John Dobson will coach the Stormers in next year’s Vodacom Super Rugby tournament.
WP Rugby is expected to make an announcement on Tuesday, according to Rapport newspaper.
Dobson, who turned down offers from other South African franchises and overseas clubs before taking the Stormers job, coached Western Province to the Currie Cup title in 2017 and the final in 2018.
He will replace Robbie Fleck, whose four-year stint as Stormers coach will end after this year’s Super Rugby tournament.
Meanwhile, WP director of rugby Gert Smal will reportedly leave his post at the end of March to join Jake White’s Toyota Verblitz in Japan. Smal’s contract was only supposed to end in October.
