Houston Dynamo legend Brad Davis to sign one-day contract with club Thursday


Houston Dynamo legend Brad Davis will sign a one-day contract with the club on Thursday, February 16, allowing him to officially retire as a member of the Dynamo.

Davis will sign his contract at a press event at BBVA Compass Stadium Thursday at 1 p.m. CT. He will be joined by Dynamo president Chris Canetti along with fellow Dynamo legendBrian Ching and several of his former teammates. The event will be streamed live at HoustonDynamo.com/live.

Known for the pinpoint accuracy with which he delivered crosses, corner kicks and free kicks, Davis patrolled the left wing for the Dynamo for a decade. He holds the club MLS records for games played (271), games started (252), minutes played (21,768), assists (104), game-winning assists (34), shots (437), shots on goal (184), corner kicks (995).

Davis was a member of the San Jose Earthquakes squad that moved to Houston in 2006, and his play helped lead the Dynamo to MLS Cup championships in each of the team’s first two years in Houston. In 2011 and 2012, Davis led the team to a pair of MLS Eastern Conference titles.

Off the field, Davis is founder and CEO of Banded Brigade Outdoors, a non-profit organization that provides active duty and returning service men and women with opportunities to reconnect with nature and one another to help their transition to civilian life. “Brad’s Brigade” became an annual fundraising opportunity for Dynamo fans, with money raised going to benefit Banded Brigade. As part of Davis’ retirement, the club has committed to continue its support of Brad’s Brigade on an ongoing basis. More details regarding the club’s support will be revealed on Thursday.
