Western Force have confirmed David Wessels and Kevin Foote as assistant coaches at the Super Rugby club for the next two years.
The move to sign the South Africans, Wessels as the senior assistant and Foote as backs coach, was revealed in The West Australian earlier this month.
The pair were on the Force coaching panel last season when the club finished 13th.
Wessels started the year as the defensive consultant and when he returned to South Africa was replaced by Foote.
Last season the Force conceded 15 fewer tries than the previous season, and when Wessels was with the Brumbies in 2012 they conceded the fewest points in the Australian conference and the second fewest overall.
Wessels also worked with the Stormers, and both men previously coached University of Cape Town to Varsity Cup success.
The club is also negotiating with former hooker Tai McIsaac to replace forwards coach Nick Stiles.
McIsaac, who retired from the Force in 2009, is coaching in Japan.
The Force will have a distinct South African flavour next year.
Emerging Springbok Wilhelm Steenkamp has signed as a marquee international after more than 50 Super Rugby games for the Bulls, Cheetahs and Sharks.
He will be joined by centre Marcel Brache and tighthead prop Chris Heiberg from Western Province, while playmaker Sias Ebersohn joined the club from the Cheetahs last year.
The Force are also in talks with Western Province players Dillyn Leyds (fly-half/full-back) and prop Francois van Wyk.The club has not renewed scrum-half Mick Snowden's contract for the 2014 season.
