The Colorado Rapids have signed Oscar Pareja as their head coach, the club announced on Thursday.

Having beaten out three other finalists, Pareja will attempt to lead the Rapids to the MLS Cup final in his first head coaching position. Pareja served as an FC Dallas assistant coach and Academy Director last season, and was a long-time player for the Dallas Burn before that.

A native of Colombia, Pareja succeeds Gary Smith and is the sixth head coach in the history of the Rapids.
