Tito Vilanova is stepping down as coach of Barcelona

In his single season in charge, he led Barcelona to the Spanish league title with a record-tying 100 points.

Vilanova, 44, had twice previously taken a medical break from his duties at Barcelona, once during his time as Pep Guardiola’s assistant in the 2011-12 season and again as when he became head coach last season.

Barcelona confirmed on Friday that Tito Vilanova is stepping down as coach to receive treatment for throat cancer.
