Corinne Diacre, Clermont's female coach, gets 2-year contract extension

Clermont Foot have appointed Corinne Diacre to replace Helena Costa as head coach.

Clermont manager Corinne Diacre, the first woman to manage a professional French men's team in competitive action, has been rewarded with a contract extension until 2018 at the Ligue 2 side.

Diacre, 41, made history when she took charge at the club in June 2014 after the brief reign and abrupt departure of her predecessor, Helena Costa.

A former captain of France's women's team who was capped 121 times, Diacre guided the men of Clermont to a 12th-placed finish in France's second tier last season.

The club announced that they would be extending her contract, shortly before Tuesday's 2-1 victory over AC Ajaccio that lifted her side to sixth in the table.

"While the current contract of the coach of Clermont Foot 63 runs until June 2016, Corinne Diacre and [club] president Claude Michy decided to continue their shared adventure for two more seasons," a club statement read.

"Corinne Diacre is now tied to Clermont Foot 63 until June 2018."
