Albert Costa is stepping down as Spain's Davis Cup captain to become the coordinator of the Spanish federation's national teams.

After three years and two Davis Cup titles, Costa will now preside over the captains of Spain's Davis Cup, Fed Cup and Olympic teams.

Costa helped Spain increase its Davis Cup title haul to five trophies, winning the tournament earlier this month and in 2009.

Costa said "after three fantastic years leading the Davis Cup team, I now look forward to this new challenge."

The federation did not say who will take Costa's place as Davis Cup captain.
