Biarritz have sacked coaches Jack Isaac and Serge Mihas, according to reports.
The French side lost 22-14 to Connacht at the weekend and are currently mid-table in the French Top 14, following a poor season last term. Club president Serge Blanco had been critical of the team's recent performances.
Laurent Rodriguez and Mathieu Rourre have been put in temporary charge of team affairs for their return match with Connacht at the Parc des Sports Aguilera this weekend. Following their defeat in Ireland Biarritz now trail pool leaders Harlequins by nine points.
