FC Dallas Officially Names Oscar Pareja Head Coach

USA TODAY Sports

After weeks of rumors, talking and more, the deal is finally official.

We can all breath easy now. FC Dallas officially announced on Friday evening that they have named Oscar Pareja their new head coach.

The Colorado Rapids will receive a first round 2015 MLS SuperDraft pick (the second of two belonging to Dallas) and allocation money as compensation for Pareja.

Pareja spent two seasons at the Rapids, compiling a regular season record of 25-30-13 (W-L-T) and helping the club reach the postseason in 2013 after finishing 5th in the Western Conference.

"We are thrilled to welcome Oscar back to FC Dallas as head coach," FC Dallas Chairman Clark Hunt said. "In addition to his stellar career as a player in our league, Oscar has an outstanding track record of success as a coach at every level of MLS. After an extensive search process, we concluded that Oscar's experience, teaching ability, personal integrity and passion for our club make him the ideal choice to lead FC Dallas in 2014 and beyond."

Pareja will be presented to the media following his return from the MLS Combine and SuperDraft next week.
