Clermont's current head coach Vern Cotter is taking over as Scotland boss and his current No 2 Franck Azema will take his place.
Gibbes - who has been at Leinster since 2008 - will become Azema's forwards coach, after agreeing a two-year contract with 'Les Jaunards' with the option of a third year.
Leinster CEO Mick Dawson told the club's website: "Jono has been an integral part of the Leinster backroom since joining the province at the start of the 2008-09 campaign and has made an invaluable contribution during a hugely successful period for the province.
"He has worked under three coaches and has always shown great dedication, enthusiasm and a strong work ethic.
"While we're obviously disappointed to see him go, we respect his decision and wish him and his family well with this new chapter in their lives."
