The Houston Dynamo re-signed franchise face Brian Ching
through at least the 2013 season. With Ching's contract set to expire next season, the Dynamo decided to secure the MLS

"It's not something they do normally, so it shows they care and value me, which I'm really excited about,"
Ching said Thursday. "I'm happy to sign with such a great organization again." Ching, the Dynamo's all-time leading scorer, has eight goals and three assists in 18 appearances this

"We are very happy to extend our relationship with Brian Ching," Dynamo chief operating officer

available, although Canetti said Ching is being rewarded "on a new level," hinting a raise to go with the job security.
