Former Ireland captain Paul O'Connell has landed himself a new coaching role.

He's moving to Paris, where he'll become the forwards coach of Stade Francais.

The former Munster legend will work under former South Africa coach Heyneke Meyer, while former Munster team-mate Mike Prendergast is already at the club as the attack and back's coach.

The club made the announcement of O'Connell's signing on Twitter:

He follows in the footsteps of former team-mate Ronan O'Gara, who took up a coaching role with Racing Metro before moving onto New Zealand side Crusaders.
