Cape Town - Montpellier head coach Jake White will leave the club at the end of this season, with Vern Cotter his replacement.
The former Springbok boss, who last term led his side to Challenge Cup success, has been in charge at Altrad Stadium since December 2014.
But his tenure will come to an end after 2016/17 as their president, Mohed Altrad, has replaced him with Scotland head coach Cotter as Altrad is said to have not forgiven White for putting himself forward for the England job in 2015.
In August 2016, the Scottish Rugby Union confirmed that Cotter will leave in June 2017, with Gregor Townsend taking over at Murrayfield.
White, 52, has coached South Africa, the Brumbies, the Sharks, Tonga (technical advisor) and Montpellier, since 2007 and led the Boks to a Rugby World Cup win in 2007.
His Montpellier side currently sit in third place in the Top 14 after winning four of their first six games.
