Plush out as Rapids managing director



A year removed from winning MLS Cup, the Colorado Rapids are undergoing major changes to their staff and front office.

With Gary Smith already out as head coach, managing director Jeff Plush became the latest to leave the club, doing so after six years on the job, according to a team release.

No reason was given for his departure, but Plush, who was vital in constructing the 2010 championship squad, said, "I believe I have accomplished what I set out to accomplish; it's time for me to explore the new opportunities in front of me."

Plush's departure comes at a time when the club is in the midst of its coaching search and while crucial personnel decisions need to be made leading into the 2012 preseason. According to the Rapids, he will act as a consultant for the organization as it searches for both his and Smith's replacements.
