Bulls assistant coach Pote Human is the favourite to take charge of the team during the Currie Cup.
Nollis Marais was granted leave from his role after a number of poor performances, with John Mitchell taking the reins for last season’s Currie Cup and this year’s Super Rugby.
However, according to Netwerk24, Mitchell will use the time during the Currie Cup to work on the junior structures at the union. Human is set to take over following a union meeting on Wednesday.
Marais, meanwhile, will likely remain in his current role as the union’s U19 coach.
