Herve Coudray will leave USO Mondeville at the end of the season and take the reins at fellow Ligue Feminine side USVO Valenciennes.
Coudray has signed a three-year deal with USVO and will replace current incumbent Laurent Buffard, who leaves for Russian giants UMMC Ekaterinburg at the end of the campaign.
USVO have dominated the French league in the eight years under Buffard's stewardship, winning consecutive titles from 2001 to 2005.
They also claimed the Coupe de France four years on the trot, from 2001 to 2004, and won EuroLeague Women titles in 2002 and 2004.
The 42-year-old Coudray, who has been at Mondeville since 2002, wants to continue Buffard's good work in the north of France.
"I won games with Mondeville, but I hope to win titles with USVO," he said.
"USVO, for me, is the number one club in France. I have climbed several levels with Mondeville, but I was frustrated in the sense that we are still limited in our financial plan.
"I wanted the additional means that I hope to find at Valenciennes."
USVO are currently joint top of the Ligue Feminine standings, with Bourges Basket, on an 18-4 record.
Mondeville, who competed in EuroLeague Women this season, are fifth on 13-9.
