The Rapids have yet to announce a new head coach for the upcoming season, and while the team has a new general manager in Jeff Cassar, it appears that he won’t be staying in Colorado.
Cassar has been a member of the Rapids front office since 2006, and he has overseen their first four seasons in MLS, including the 2017 season.
Colorado is currently 11th in the Western Conference with 21 points, one goal behind the San Jose Earthquakes for the final playoff spot in the conference.
Cassard, who spent the last two seasons as the Rapids’ head coach, was fired after the 2017 campaign, but the club has been in the market for a new leader.
With a lot of young talent coming into the league, the Rapids have been searching for a head coach to fill out the roster.
The Rapids recently announced that they would be hiring an outside candidate for the job.
According to sources, the Colorado Rapids have not made any firm plans to hire a new manager this season, but with Cassar reportedly interested in leaving the club, the team could potentially make a change to the front office in the near future.
The Rapids could potentially look to fill the vacant head coach role with an outside hire, though that process is unlikely to happen anytime soon.
The team is currently looking for a candidate to take over the reins of the front offices duties, which includes overseeing the team’s training and player development programs.
