A familiar face is set to keep working for Levallois Metropolitans in the long run, as the club announced that head coach Fred Fauthoux re-signed his contract until the end of the 2020-21 season. Fauthoux, age 44, became Paris's head coach midway through the 2015-16 season. He helped his club reach the French League semifinals last season. A former player, Fauthoux spent his whole career with Pau-Orthez, averaging 4.7 points and 1.7 assists in 81 Turkish Airlines EuroLeague career games over six seasons. Once he retired in 2007, Fauthoux coached Pau's junior team and vinculated squad Pau Orthez Nord-Est before joining Paris. As assistant coach, he helped the French national team get a gold medal at the 2014 U16 European Championships.
