Montpellier coach Rene Girard has signed a two-year contract extension, the club have confirmed.
The new deal will keep Girard, who took over the Ligue 1 side in June 2009, in charge until 2013.
Girard turned Montpellier into surprise title challengers last season in their first season back in the top flight. They eventually finished fifth.
This term they sit sixth and are also through to the final of the Coupe de la Ligue, where they will face Marseille.
