Toulouse s coach William Servat jogging

Backing from his boss: William Servat

Under-fire Toulouse coach Guy Novès says that his assistants Jean-Baptiste Elissalde (backs) and William Servat (forwards) will remain in their roles despite an underwhelming season.

Toulouse saw their run of 20 successive Top 14 semi-final appearances come to an end when they went down 21-16 to Racing-Metro on Friday.

And while Novès' squad finished atop their European Cup group, which included minnows Zebre and the weakest Irish province, Connacht, the former four-time champions were handed a 47-23 pasting by Munster in the quarter-finals.

"Of course, they'll keep their jobs for next season," Novès said of former internationals Elissalde and Servat amid rumours that one or both could lose their jobs.

"We'll see if there's to be some changes, but nothing to turn the club upside down.

"There won't be a revolution, but in any case, there has never been one at Toulouse."

Servat has a contract running until 2015 and Elissalde 2016.
