Ochieng named Kenya Sevens coach

Date published: December 17 2014

Felix Ochieng has been appointed as Paul Treu’s replacement as the new head coach of Kenya’s national Sevens team.

Ochieng, who was one of Treu’s two deputy coaches will remain in charge of the team for the remainder of the 2014/2015 season.

Former Springbok Sevens stalwart Vuyo Zangqa and his compatriot, Graham Bentz, who came in as part of Treu’s back-up staff, will retain their positions as deputy coach and strength and conditioning coach respectively.

Kenya has made a dismal start to this season’s Sevens World Series under Treu, who resigned after Kenya’s 24-5 loss to Canada in the Bowl Final at the Nelson Mandela Bay Sevens in Port Elizabeth last Sunday.

Kenya have managed to collect seven points and are placed 14th on the table after three rounds.

The next round of the series is in Wellington, New Zealand in February next year.
