Mastroeni won the 2010 MLS Cup as a player with the Rapids, part of an 11-year run with the club.

The 65-times capped USMNT player finished his time in Colorado with a poor mark in three of four seasons, though the Rapids allowed the fewest goals in MLS last season.

Ex-Sheffield Wednesday youth team coach Steve Cook will take over as interim coach.
