Frederic Michalak has returned to Lyon in an advisory role after retiring at the conclusion of last season.
But Michalak is already back involved with the club, taking on a role to support president Yann Roubert and manager Pierre Mignoni, with his responsibilities including recruitment and training.
Michalak said: “I am delighted to be able to start my second life at LOU Rugby and bring my expertise and experience to the club.”
Roubert added: “It is a pleasure to continue working with Frederic, who still has much to offer LOU Rugby.”
