Former Crusaders player Matt Sexton is quitting his job as Southern Kings coach and returning to New Zealand.

Sexton, who coached the side during their first foray into Super Rugby in 2013, said personal reasons were behind his decision to return to his family in New Zealand and that he was sad his time with the union had ended.

"I have really enjoyed my stay in South Africa and working with the Southern and EP [Eastern Province] Kings over the past two years," he said. "There is definitely a wealth of talent in the region, and I am sure that EP will be making an impact on the world stage in the years to come."

While contracted until the end of 2014, the Kings were looking to extend his contract until 2015. Eastern Province chief executive Charl Crous said: "Matt has been a great asset to the union, and has brought a wealth of experience to the team.

"He has worked tirelessly over the past two years, and has managed to accomplish what few thought possible and played an integral part in the success of the Southern Kings in our debut season in Super Rugby."
