Boucher served as the wicketkeeping coach for the Knight Riders for the 2016 IPL, despite the fact that he may not have much experience coaching in the T20 franchise circuit. Both the Knight Riders and the Royal Challengers were his former teams. 

After that, he took over as head coach of Titans in the domestic South African league before taking over as manager of the South African men’s national team.
