The New Zealand technician from Auvergne was sacked from his post on Monday morning.

On Monday morning, Jono Gibbs is no longer coach of ASM Clermont Auvergne. The Auvergne club officially announced this via a press release published early in the morning. The move takes effect immediately, meaning ASM will travel to South Africa this week for Saturday’s Champions Cup match against the Stormers without the 45-year-old New Zealander.

Jono Gibbs – who was under contract until June 2024 – who arrived in July 2021 from La Rochelle to take over from Franck Azema, faced poor results for the club, with its tenth place in the top fourteen (6 wins, 1 draw and 8 defeats) And a very bad history on the European scene (two losses in 3 days), with the last defeat so far on Friday night against Leicester (29-44) at home.

“This choice to change is part of a context in which the ambitions the club continues to project demand new directionsspecifies the press release sent by the management of the jaunard club. As far as the future is concerned, decisions will be announced quickly to ensure the continuity of the sports project and to restore a positive dynamic for the entire club, its partners and supporters. » At the moment, no other coach has been appointed to replace the New Zealander.
