Express have appointed former Vipers SC tactician Alex Isabirye as their new head coach.
The Wankulukuku-based club, confirmed the news on Thursday, December 7 through their social media handles.
“Musongola takes over as head coach,” Express announced.
Isabirye comes in to replace James Odoch who was shown the exit following Express’ goalless draw with BUL at Wankulukuku.
As this website had reported earlier, Jackson Magera and Edward Golola were all considered for the job, but Isabirye, after meeting with some club leaders resulted in agreement.
Isabirye has been without a coaching role since departing from Vipers in July, and recently turned down an offer from Gaddafi as Technical Director.
During his tenure at Vipers, he managed 13 league games, securing seven wins, four draws, and two losses against Bright Stars and SC Villa while clinching the title.
His time at Kitende also led to winning the Uganda Cup.
Previously, Isabirye moved from BUL FC to Vipers, steering BUL to the Uganda Cup round of 16 before his departure. His managerial experience includes roles with URA, BUL, Soana, Kyetume, among others.
Hassan Mubiru had a day before Isabirye’s arrival been appointed to take on the head coach role on interim basis.
