BRISBANE, Australia (AP) -- Ange Postecoglou has quit as Brisbane Roar coach after leading the club to back-to-back A-League titles.

Postecoglou didn't immediately indicate where he will coach in future, although he has been linked to a vacancy at the Melbourne Victory.

He informed the Roar players of his decision shortly before a parade in downtown Brisbane on Tuesday to celebrate their 2-1 victory over Perth in Sunday's A-League final. Assistant coach Rado Vidosic is likely to replace Postecoglou at the Roar.

Postecoglou took over as Roar coach from Frank Farina in 2009. The team finished next-to-last that season but has won both premierships since then.
