New York City FC and head coach Dome Torrent have agreed to part ways, the team announced Friday.

Torrent, 57, assumed control of NYCFC in June 2018, mere hours after Patrick Vieira left the club to take over Nice.

"While I've greatly enjoyed coaching NYCFC and the incredible life experience of living in New York, in mutual discussion with the club, I feel this is the right time for myself and my family to look for other opportunities as I develop my career as a head coach," Torrent said in a statement.

"I'd like to thank NYCFC for giving me this opportunity. I've learned a lot during my time at the club after working with a fantastic Sporting Department and a great group of coaches."

Torrent helped NYCFC to a third-place finish in the Eastern Conference in 2018 as well as a playoff victory.

This past season, NYCFC led the Eastern Conference with a franchise-best 64 points and an 18-10-6 record but was eliminated from the MLS playoffs by Toronto FC in the conference semifinals. Toronto FC advanced to Sunday's MLS Cup final, where it will face the Seattle Sounders.

"In discussions with Dome since our season finished, we've decided that this is the right moment for both parties to focus on new opportunities," vice-chairman Marty Edelman said. "On behalf of everyone at NYCFC, I'd like to wish Dome all the best for the future. I have no doubt he'll continue to have a considerable impact on the sport as he has done for many years."

Torrent spent more than a decade as an assistant coach for highly regarded European head coach Pep Guardiola, who is the head man at Manchester City.

Assistant coaches Albert Puig and Jordi Gris departed the club along with Torrent.
