Vanheisbroek coached Buffalos for the first time from May 2014 to September 2017. West Fleming gave the club their first (and so far) only league title in 2015 and spent the winter with Gent (the first Belgian club in fifteen years) in the Champions League. In the fall of 2017, there was a break and shortly thereafter he moved to Anderlecht. Vanhaezebrouck was fired there at the end of 2018. After that he was without a club for a while and worked as an analyst.
Vanheisbroek immediately brought continuity and stability to the Buffalos side, which won the Belgian Cup this season and emerged as the winner of the European qualifiers. In Europe, there was a winter, followed by an elimination in the eighth finals of the Conference League against PAOK.
