Colorado Rapids head coach Robin Fraser signed a four-year contract extension through the 2025 MLS season.

Financial terms were not disclosed by the team on Wednesday.

Fraser, 55, guided the Rapids to a club-record 61 points last season and franchise-best first-place finish in the Western Conference. He was named a finalist for the Sigi Schmid MLS Coach of the Year award.

“We are thrilled to extend Robin’s time with the club for another four years,” Rapids executive vice president and general manager Padraig Smith said. “Robin is one of the league’s most respected and accomplished coaches, and in his short time with the team so far, we’ve seen how he can help lead the club in our constant pursuit of winning MLS Cup. Robin’s leadership, work ethic and ability get the best out of our players through his coaching make him the perfect fit for our club.

“We are incredibly excited for what the next few years holds with Robin as our head coach. Securing his long-term future with the Rapids is another sign of our ownership’s commitment to not only growing the sport here in Colorado and the U.S. but to bringing another title back to Colorado.”

Fraser owns a 32-16-15 regular-season record since being named the Rapids’ head coach on Aug. 25, 2019.

“I’m extremely happy to be signing with the Rapids for an extended period of time,” Fraser said. “This team is still in its infancy, in terms of where we want to go, so I am genuinely excited about the opportunity to continue this project. I’ve truly enjoyed working with this group of players and this incredible technical staff and am very much looking forward to what we can accomplish together. I’m grateful to Stan and Josh Kroenke, Team Governor Matt Hutchings, Padraig Smith and the entire KSE organization for the opportunity to continue here and for their unwavering support.”
