The Matsatsantsa coach will be in charge of the Pretoria side during the 2012-13 season following their successful Nedbank Cup campaign
This was decided after the coach had a successful meeting with United management this week.
Hunt confirmed that he has started looking for new players to bolster his squad for Caf competition next season.
"After winning the Nedbank Cup, our ultimate dream now is to conquer Africa," Hunt said. "The last time we played in the Caf Confederation Cup we lost to a team that eventually won the tournament, but this time we will be more prepared.
"We are talking to a few players with a hope to signing them for next season."
Hunt also confirmed that veteran striker Sibusiso Zuma is staying for next season. SuperSport have already signed Clifford Mulenga from Bloemfontein Celtic
