Ex-France winger Emile Ntamack has joined Bordeaux-Begles as backs coach on a three-year deal, the Top 14 club announced on Friday.

Ntamack, 44, replaces Vincent Etcheto who was sacked after a season in which Bordeaux finished in seventh spot, one place off the top six that vie for the league title. Bordeaux, however, will play in next season’s European Champions Cup after beating English side Gloucester in a play-off to clinch the final spot.

“The name of Emile Ntamack came out of the hat 10 days ago,” said Bordeaux president Laurent Marti. “He was patiently biding his time at Toulouse, but that didn’t happen.”
