Following the decision by Major League Soccer to reinstate goalkeeper Tyler Deric earlier today, the Houston Dynamo will loan Deric to the club’s USL affiliate Rio Grande Valley FC. The loan is expected to be finalized in the coming days.

Following is the statement released earlier this evening by Major League Soccer:

On November 1, 2017, Houston Dynamo goalkeeper Tyler Deric was suspended by the League in connection with his arrest and charge of misdemeanor assault in connection with an alleged domestic incident.  To date, he has been suspended from 19 MLS matches.

On May 22, 2018, the Harris County District Attorney entered into an Order of Deferred Adjudication and placed Deric on community supervision.  Provided that he completes a year-long diversion program, all charges against Deric will be dismissed.

Based on the League’s review, the District Attorney’s resolution and the length of the suspension already served, Deric is now permitted to return to team activities and competition, subject to continued compliance with the Order of Deferred Adjudication.
