The French Rugby Federation said that France head coach Fabien Galthie was the right man to lead the team despite the World Cup quarter-final defeat on home soil.
The highly-fancied Les Bleus were knocked out of the competition by holders the Springboks 29-28 on Sunday.
Galthie, 54, took over in December 2019 and reinvigorated an under-achieving team.
The former France captain has guided France to a first Six Nations title in more than a decade as well as impressive Test wins over New Zealand and the Springboks.
“He is the right person for the years to come,” the FFR’s president Florian Grill told AFP on Monday.
“The result of one night is not going erase four exceptional years.”
