Changes Close to the Top

Paul Bravo in, John Murphy out. In the space of a couple of days, the Colorado Rapids have said goodbye to former assistant coach Murphy and welcomed former star player Bravo in a newly created position of Technical Director. The Gary Smith coaching team finally seems to be coming slowly together. I'll be sad to see Murphy go. Great bloke and incredible soccer knowledge and analysis. He is apparently pursuing coaching opportunities but it is unclear what those may be as of now. Bravo, the team's all-time leading scorer, will be responsible for domestic and international scouting.

Is there any reason to think that Bravo will be half the scout that Murphy was? I can't say it is a bad move, but I'll be honest and say that I was never much a fan of Bravo, even if he is the leading scorer in Rapids History.
