Rapids part ways with head coach Robin Fraser


The Colorado Rapids became the latest MLS franchise to make a head coaching change.

Robin Fraser has been removed as head coach; the club announced Tuesday. Rapids assistant coach Chris Little has been named interim head coach for the foreseeable future.

“We’re incredibly grateful to Robin for his commitment to the club and for what he achieved during his time here as head coach,” said Colorado Rapids President Pádraig Smith. “This was a difficult decision but one we felt was necessary to best position the club to return to the playoffs and ultimately compete for trophies. We thank Robin for his four years of dedicated work and we wish him nothing but the best in the future.”

Fraser was named the Rapids head coach in August 2019 and went on to compile a 47-48-34 record across all competitions. He led the Rapids to consecutive postseason appearances in his first two full seasons as Rapids head coach.

Little joined the Rapids as an assistant coach prior to the start of the 2021 MLS season. The Scotland native holds a U.S. Soccer Pro License and previously served as head coach of the Tacoma Defiance during the club’s time in the USL Championship.

Little also served as head coach of Elon University and also served as Director of Coaching and Player Development for the North Carolina Youth Soccer Association.

The Rapids are last in the Western Conference and are 15 points out of the final playoff spot.
