Gavin Hunt (born 11 July 1964) is a South African former football (soccer) player and coach currently managing Premier Soccer League club Bidvest Wits.[1]

A nuggety right-back, Hunt spent almost his entire playing career with Hellenic. He had to retire because of an achilles tendon injury and went straight into coaching.

Hunt's greatest success came at SuperSport United, where he won three consecutive PSL championships from 2007-08 to 2009-10.

He previously managed Seven Stars, Hellenic FC, Black Leopards and Moroka Swallows.[2]
