[MLS 2014 COUNTDOWN] Recently retired Pablo Mastroeni, who served as the Colorado Rapids captain from late 2004 until his trade to the LA Galaxy during the 2013 season, has joined the Rapids' technical staff as a special assistant to technical director Paul Bravo.

The former U.S. international is Colorado’s career leader in games and minutes played, He will start his position by assisting Bravo with the Rapids efforts at the adidas MLS Player Combine and MLS SuperDraft.

“In addition to a playing career that few can rival, Pablo is also an intelligent, passionate leader who has the respect of everyone in our organization,” said Rapids President Tim Hinchey. “His experience as a player, knowledge and understanding of the Rapids and our goals, and dedication to the growth of this club will serve us well moving forward.”

-- Tom Soehn, the former D.C. United head coach and Vancouver Whitecaps interim coach, has joined the New England Revolution’s coaching staff as an assistant coach.

Soehn, who most recently worked as USA Cup's director of soccer development, began his MLS coaching career as an assistant at Chicago. He led D.C. to a second-straight Supporters Shield in 2007 and guided it to the U.S. Open Cup championship in 2008.

In January 2010, Soehn was appointed as Vancouver’s first director of soccer operations, where he set up its technical operation for its MLS debut in 2011. He returned to the bench in late May 2011, and coached the team for the remainder of the club’s inaugural season after head coach Teitur Thordarson was released.
