Guy Noves has decided to retire from coaching. One of the most successful French coach ever on the domestic and european stage with 9 French championships and 4 European Champions Cup to his credit, and 2 French championship titles as a player and 7 selection, the emblematic Toulousain has decided to put an end to his career.

The irony is that he had been picked to be the French National coach leading to this world cup, but a string of bad results capped by a draw with Japan in Paris got him sacked by the new French Rugby Union president Bernard Laporte.

Now contemplating Japan reaching the QF, unbeaten in a group including Ireland and Scotland, Noves confess his feeling of disgust with the state of French rugby and said he preferred leaving it there.

Someone who really should have been given the French job earlier. His Toulouse teams in the 00’s were great to watch, but also opponents to be feared.

12 years at the same club. He is up here with the likes of Fergusson in Manchester United. On top of which you can add his 13 years as a player. A truly devoted Toulousain.

Second part defininitely true; first part, I was under the impression that he had been offered it repeatedly, but always turned it down? It's the kind of thing that likely puts doubt into the minds of people like Mark McCall if they ever really want to give up their post at a dominant club and then risk failure on the world stage

1million euros.

But this may be increased based on Japan's performance at the RWC. :P

For sure, he can retire on that basis.

It was 22 years as coach. 1993 to 2015. More European Cups than Ferguson, too.

I got the impression that whilst he had been “offered” the job, it had always been with terms attached, effectively a non-offer type offer. I don’t know if Laporte, Saint-Andre, Lievremont and whoever else had the job in those years all agreed to the terms, or got different offers. But one would think that around the mid-late 00’s, when the national team really struggled with cohesion whilst ST were still piling up trophies, that the FFR really should have been giving him what he wanted.
