Ronan O'Gara has ruled out a return to Munster as he considers a coaching offer from Top 14 side La Rochelle.
O'Gara is the current backs coach of Super Rugby champions Crusaders but he has been linked with a return to France where he previously worked as defence coach with Racing 92.
A return to Munster has also been mentioned as the province are in the lookout for a new attack following the news that Felix Jones and forwards coach Jerry Flannery are to leave at the end of the season.
O'Gara is keen on a head coach role and has ruled out returning to Munster for the time being, but he has confirmed that he is in talks with La Rochelle.
"No, that’s inaccurate," O’Gara told Off The Ball when asked if was in talks to become La Rochelle's new backs coach.
"Obviously Jono Gibbes is there and he is a director of rugby, but he wants someone to run the rugby programme and that’s what I am speaking to him about.
"That (head coach) would be the next position I would be looking at.
"There’s (other) options at home in Ireland. I have spoken to Munster, but there is no serious conversation in terms of a coaching position because I don’t really want it to go that route at the minute.
"If I am good enough then I can get a job at home on my terms.
"There’s some really tough decisions to make. So hopefully in the next 10 or 14 days there will be a decision. But nothing is done yet."
