Pelous will be joined by fellow international legend and former Brive coach Olivier Magne and former France U20 boss Philippe Agostini as assistant coaches.
Agostini's role with the U20 squad has gone to former international fly-half David Aucagne, who will work alongside team manager Philippe Sella.
