Team o∞cially announces 3-year extension for coach
It’s official. The Rapids on Thursday announced that coach Pablo Mastroeni signed a three-year contract extension to remain at the helm of the club through 2019.
“I appreciate the trust and confidence demonstrated by the Kroenkes — and I’m eager to get back to work to prepare for yet another successful campaign,” Mastroeni, 40, said in a news release. “With the help of my coaching staff, we have been able to transform the culture of this organization and I’m very excited about the direction in which this club is headed.”
This year, Mastroeni led the Rapids to their best regular season in franchise history (15-6-13), setting records for most points (58), most points at home (39) and most wins at home (11), and the longest season unbeaten streak (15 games).
“Over the course of his managerial career, Pablo has proven that he is one of the top young head coaches in this league,” Rapids president Tim Hinchey said in a news release. “We are delighted with his ongoing development and the level of commitment that he has shown towards this organization. We’re looking forward to the continued success of the club under his leadership.”
Mastroeni’s record is 3239-31 in three seasons with Colorado. He holds club records as a player for most games and minutes played.
