Pep Guardiola signs 3-year contract to become Bayern Munich's new coach

Bayern Munich says it has hired Pep Guardiola as its new coach starting next season.

Bayern says the former Barcelona coach signed a contract through the end of the 2015-16 season.

Guardiola won 14 titles with Barcelona before stepping down last season. He replaces Jupp Heynckes, who told Bayern he wanted to end his career when his contract expires at the end of the season.
