It's been floating around the rumor mills for a good while now - we over here first talked about it ten days ago - but it looks like it's been finally confirmed that former Colorado Rapids gaffer Gary Smith will be the new manager for English side Stevenage FC.

After a moderate amount of success in MLS including two playoff appearances and an unlikely run to the MLS Cup final, Smith's resume was impressive enough to get him some looks in his native homeland. Stevenage were promoted from League Two up to League One in England this season, and are putting together a decent campaign for another promotion this season.

Personally, I had fun talking with so many Stevenage fans over the last week and a half discussing the ins and outs of our former manager before the official word came out. Here's one more hearty good luck to Smith out at The Boro!
