Joachim Low will remain in charge as Germany head coach despite their disastrous World Cup campaign.
Low is understood to have given a verbal commitment to see out the new contract he signed before the World Cup, which extended his stay in the role until 2022.
Germany failed to make it out of the group stage at this summer's World Cup in Russia, finishing bottom of Group F after a shock 2-0 defeat to South Korea consigned the reigning world champions to an early exit.
"I feel, in spite of the legitimate criticism of our departure, generally much support and encouragement," said Low.
"But now I want to design the rebuilding with full commitment. It all takes time, but everything will happen in time for the start of the new international season in September."
National team director Oliver Bierhoff said: "I am very pleased that Jogi Löw is at the helm of our national team and we sat together for a long time yesterday and I felt the full energy to continue.
"After 14 years of successful work, we now have to rebuild and we will now be thinking about it and about further structural changes."
Low had guided Germany to at least the semi-finals of every major tournament they had played since he took over in 2006 and led them to World Cup triumph in 2014.
