The Colorado Rapids announced Tuesday they have fired fourth-year head coach Pablo Mastroeni.
After a 16-year career in the MLS, Mastroeni took the head coaching job with the Rapids heading into the 2014 season.
In his nearly four full seasons in Colorado, the Rapids had a combined record of 39-54-35. Mastroeni did lead the team to a berth in the Western Conference championship last season. But, the organization decided that it was time to part ways with him mid-season, as the club currently sits at 6-12-4 in 2017.
For the final 12 games this year, assistant coach Steve Cooke will step in as the interim head coach.
