Fernando Clavijo has resigned as Colorado Rapids head coach in a move that seemed destined to happen even before the 2008 season began.

"A lot of things happened through the year that I was not happy with in many ways," Clavijo told the Denver Post. "But I think because of family now I’ve decided it’s the right time to put all my energy into my family and recharged my batteries and myself, too."

Assistant coach Gary Smith will take over as head coach for the rest of the season.

What do you think of Clavijo resigning? Did he do it a season too late? Is he really the main person to blame for Colorado’s prolonged ineptitude or does the problem go higher up?
