Top 14 Rugby Club Toulouse' president Jean-Rene Bouscatel has revealed that France hooker William Servat will take over as the club's forwards coach next season and replace former clubmate Yannick Bru.

"It means a lot because I came to Toulouse (in 1994) and this is carrying on my career," the 34-year-old Servat said Wednesday.

Servat will continue to play for Toulouse at least until the end of this season, with his contract running to June 2013.

In moving into coaching, he will be following directly in the footsteps of former teammate Jean-Baptiste Elissalde, who was named as the club's backs coach after he finished playing for Toulouse.

Servat, a three-time European Cup champion with Toulouse, is in line to win his 46th cap for France when he takes the pitch against Scotland in the Six Nations on February 26.
