Colorado's Clavijo resigns; assistant Smith named interim

COMMERCE CITY, Colo. -- Fernando Clavijo is resigning as Colorado Rapids coach due to personal reasons and assistant Gary Smith will take over as interim coach.

Clavijo left the team last week to go to his native Uruguay for a family medical emergency. Entering the final 10 games of his contract, Clavijo and the Rapids agreed to part ways now so he can focus on his family.

"We appreciate all that Fernando has done for this team over the last four years and wish him and his family the best," Rapids managing director Jeff Plush said in a statement. "He has worked tirelessly on behalf of our organization and brought us some of our greatest successes. We are poised to achieve great things, and when we do we will look back fondly and appreciatively of Fernando's tenure with our club."

Clavijo was 40-49-25 as coach of the Rapids, who advanced to the Western Conference finals in his first two seasons but missed the playoffs last year. They are 7-10-3 this year.

Smith filled in for Clavijo when the Rapids beat Kansas City 2-1 on Saturday, Colorado's first win since July 4.
