The winless Colorado Rapids dismissed head coach Anthony Hudson on Wednesday. Hudson compiled an 8-26-9 record in parts of two seasons with the club.

Colorado is 0-7-2 this season and is the only MLS team without a victory. The Rapids have lost six straight games.

“We appreciate Anthony’s commitment to the Rapids organization during his time with the club,” Rapids general manager Pádraig Smith said in a statement. “This is a pivotal period in the development of our team and it’s in the club’s best interest to make a change now. We still have a lot of season left and we look forward to getting back on track.”

Assistant Conor Casey will serve as interim coach while the team conducts a search for a new leader.

The Rapids have been outscored 24-12 this season.

Following Saturday’s 1-0 loss to Atlanta United, Hudson was critical of ownership and the talent on the roster.

“We are fighting at the bottom with a bottom group of players and we have to find a way to pick up results whilst also being a team that tries to play a certain way,” Hudson told reporters. “And we just have to find that balance.”

The Rapids host the Vancouver Whitecaps on Friday.
