MLS outfit Colorado Rapids have parted company with head coach Robin Fraser.
The 56-year-old Jamaican-born US international has been the Rapids’ head coach for over four years but following a dismal run of just one win in 14 matches, Fraser has today been relieved of his duties.

In a statement made on their official club website, the Rapids thanked Fraser for his effort over the past four years.
“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 Rapids president Padraig 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.”
The Rapids topped the Western Conference in 2021 and Fraser was voted runner-up for MLS Coach of the Year. However, the last two years of Fraser’s reign have been far less successful and the Rapids currently sit bottom of the MLS with a league-worst goal difference of -23.
Fraser becomes the sixth MLS head coach to leave his job this season already. Assistant head coach Chris Little has been placed in temporary charge whilst the club begin their search to find Fraser’s long-term successor.
