Rwanda men’s’ national team head coach Paul Bitok will not extend his contract as Rwanda’s Volleyball Federation Technical Director despite holding talks with the Ministry of Sports and Culture on a possible contract extension until the end of the year.

The former Kenyan international’s current tenure will expire at the end of this month after being at the helm of Rwandese volleyball for the last decade, helping them to rise and become one of the best in Africa across all surfaces.
This is the second time he is announcing his retirement after hinting last month that he would not be extending his contract.

“I won’t be able to extend the contract as agreed with the ministry in order to enable a smooth transition and also to finish the competitions that the national teams have qualified,” Bitok told Citizen Digital.

Rwanda men’s and women’s teams will be taking part in the beach volleyball World Championship in Germany later this month, as well as the Girls World Cup in Mexico in July and the all African Games in August in Morocco.

“After consulting my family and friendly I have made my mind, but I will be available for consultation but for now am going back home,” He added.

He, however, put the Kenya Volleyball Federation on notice. “If there is anything I can do to help volleyball in Kenya am ready.”
The tactician who captained the Kenya National Men’s Volleyball team at his excellent days has been touted for an active return in Kenyan coaching whether at the club or national level.
