Paris - Former France captain Fabien Pelous has been named as sporting director of Top 14 giants Toulouse.

The 41-year-old, who is the most capped Frenchman of all time with 118 appearances, has spent the last four years coaching the French Under-20 side who are currently playing at the World Cup in Italy.

The former second row spent almost his entire playing career with hometown club Toulouse, winning three European Cups and three French titles before retiring in 2009.

Pelous, who captained France to the 2004 Six Nations Grand Slam, will work alongside new head coach Ugo Mola at the 19-time French champions.

Jean-Baptiste Ellisalde retains his position as backs coach with William Servat continuing as forwards coach -- the same roles they held for the 2014/15 season.

Former long-serving head coach Guy Noves, who left the Stade Ernst Wallon after their Top 14 semi-final defeat to Clermont last weekend, will take over as France boss after the 2015 World Cup.
