Frisco, TX (SportsNetwork.com) - FC Dallas announced Friday that the franchise has appointed former player Oscar Pareja as its new head coach.

"We are thrilled to welcome Oscar back to FC Dallas as head coach," club Chairman Clark Hunt said. "In addition to his stellar career as a player in our league, Oscar has an outstanding track record of success as a coach at every level of MLS. After an extensive search process, we concluded that Oscar's experience, teaching ability, personal integrity and passion for our club make him the ideal choice to lead FC Dallas in 2014 and beyond."

Pareja joined the Dallas Burn in 1998 and tallied 13 goals and 47 assists before retiring in 2005.

He spent the next two seasons as an assistant coach for FC Dallas before joining Wilmer Cabrera's staff with the United States U-17 national team.

Pareja accepted the head coaching position with the Colorado Rapids following the 2011 season and produced a 25-30-13 record over two terms.

The Rapids will receive a first round pick in the 2015 MLS SuperDraft and allocation money as compensation for Pareja.
