Colorado Rapids Remain Quiet Over Oscar Pareja Rumors

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

MLSSoccer.com reports that the Rapids have not been contacted by FC Dallas.

This was some news I meant to get to over the weekend but life got in the way. MLSSoccer.com reported on Friday evening that the Colorado Rapids have not been approached by FC Dallas yet about their head coach Oscar Pareja in regards to the open coaching vacancy in Frisco.

FC Dallas is required to get permission from the Rapids (and likely the league) to be able to speak to Pareja. MLSSoccer also attempted to reach out to both clubs but was unable to get anyone to comment on the situation. I've done the same on my end and have come up short as well.

There is little doubt that this will continue to be a tug-of-war between the two clubs over the next couple of weeks. FC Dallas has repeatedly stated their intention to get a new coach during the month of November. That way the new boss can help assist technical director Fernando Clavijo on the slew of pending roster decisions that will need to be made by the end of the month.

The club is also said to be looking at a short list of other candidates as well but sources tell me that Pareja remains at the top of the list.

FC Dallas is wrapping up their 2013 year with final weeks of training before the annual exit interviews, which are likely set to take place for non-playoff teams like them within the next week or so.

The big question I ask all of you is how long should FC Dallas pursue Pareja here? As long as it takes?
