Clermont and the former third line of France's France team will assume the reigns of the Espoirs Lyon team next season. In a press release, the LOU announced Tuesday that it had officially launched its arrival. Olivier Magne will coach the team and Yannick Osmond will accompany them. This will be the second club experience for the five-time Six Nations Tournament winner with the XV France.
He took over the management of CA Brive in 2007/08, shortly after his retirement. He joined the Federation in the tenth decade and took over various teams, including the U20s (2014/17). He was also a television consultant.
His mission? The Espoirs de Lyon club was raised by the elite who finished in penultimate position in their group this season.
This is part of a significant reshuffle in the club's staff. It is the return to the Crabos of Lionel Beauxis who just retired.
