• The Pyrenean-born Baup's promising career as a goalkeeper ended at the age of 20 when a car crash left him with two broken bones in his neck.

• Having gained formal coaching qualifications, Baup put his theory into practice with amateur side Castelnaudary, doing enough to attract the attention of Toulouse, who put him in charge of their youth academy in 1984; Fabien Barthez was among his discoveries, and he was to move to St-Étienne in a similar capacity in 1991, briefly taking command of the senior team in 1996.

• Hired by Bordeaux in 1997, Baup embarked on the most successful spell of his career, with his Girondins selection pipping Marseille to the 1998/99 French title then beating FC Lorient 3-0 in the 2001/02 League Cup final, a victory best remembered for a tremendous Pauleta bicycle kick.

• Having regularly led Bordeaux in Europe, Baup was to return to UEFA competitions in subsequent spells with St-Étienne (2004-06) and Toulouse (2006-08), but took time out after his Nantes side were relegated from Ligue 1 at the end of the 2008/09 campaign.

• Following a successful spell as a TV pundit, Baup returned to coaching, replacing Didier Deschamps at Marseille in July 2012; his side started the 2012/13 season with a record six straight Ligue 1 wins en route to qualifying for the UEFA Champions League group stage as runners-up to Paris Saint-Germain FC.
