Baxter, who coached Bafana Bafana from May 2004 to December 2005, has signed a two-year deal with the club, with an option to renew for an unspecified period.
Motaung has explained what is expected of Baxter.
“He will fit in well into our strategy going forward because of his great wealth of knowledge at club and international level. His expertise as far as mentoring coaches as a coaching instructor will assist us in developing our own coaches and will also help a great deal in developing our youth academy," Motaung says.
Chiefs will announce Baxter’s assistants on Friday.
