And it should be, perhaps is the highest profile coach compared even with T2 countries. Where there is hired a coach who was coaching Springboks or s similar test team. He had a good record vs ABs and he filled the shoes of Jack White which tends to put him in a negative light.

Even if probably he is after a hiatus he's still a high profile managers and this attract interest, respect of players and generally more attention from public and likely some help from SA so I think is a great for Zimbabwe.

Eddie Jones (who now coaches England) coached Japan having previously coached Australia, so it's not completely without precedent, although I imagine Japan can offer their head coach a lot more money than Zimbabwe.
