The Colorado Rapids pulled the plug after more than a season of futility under Anthony Hudson, firing the manager on Wednesday.
Hudson's Rapids are the only winless team in the league this season (0-7-2), following a season in which the club went 8-19-7 and had the third-fewest points in MLS. Their -12 goal differential is the worst in the league, as is their 24 goals conceded. Former Rapids striker and assistant coach Conor Casey has stepped into the void Hudson leaves behind in an interim capacity.
"This is a pivotal period in the development of our team and it’s in the club’s best interest to make a change now," club general manager Padraig Smith said in a statement.
