Report: Rapids Reject One Club's Approach For Oscar Pareja

Doug Pensinger

ESPNFC.com is reporting that the Rapids have turned down any attempts by another MLS club to approach Oscar Pareja.

It looks as though FC Dallas may have to turn to plan B...or plan C for their next head coach.

An ESPNFC.com report from Wednesday states that the Colorado Rapids turned down one MLS club's approach to pursue head coach Oscar Pareja.

An MLS club with a coaching vacancy has spoken with the Colorado Rapids about the availability of manager Oscar Pareja, but the Rapids have rejected that approach, according to a league source.

While the source didn't specify what team had inquired about Pareja, the Colombian has been linked with the position at FC Dallas ever since Schellas Hyndman resigned just prior to the end of the season.

Again, no club was mentioned but with only FC Dallas and Vancouver with open coaching vacancies at the moment, it is pretty easy to guess which club contacted the Rapids about Pareja.

As the article states at the bottom of it, Pareja is looking to 'finish what he started' in Colorado.

Obviously this isn't good for FC Dallas. But as we've seen this week, the club didn't have all their eggs in the Pareja basket. I would imagine the next week or two will be very interesting around Frisco as the club searches for their next option. There are certainly plenty of viable candidates out there, but the clock is certainly ticking a little faster now days on this search.

We'll continue to have our ear to the ground as this story develops.
