Garnier Joins France Coaching Staff

05 December 2011

France have added Bourges boss Valerie Garnier to the coaching staff of Pierre Vincent.

The 46-year-old will be with Les Bleues as they compete at the FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournament for Women.

Garnier, a former France international herself, has had a challenging start to life as the successor to Vincent at Bourges.

The French club has three wins and five defeats in Group A of the EuroLeague Women and six wins in their first 10 games in France's top flight.

Vincent left the post to take over ASVEL in the men's league.

France won the bronze medal at this year's EuroBasket Women. They were gold-medal winners at the EuroBasket in Latvia two years ago.
