MLS Moves: Davis to retire as Dynamo player

He finished his career last year with Sporting Kansas City, but Brad Davis will come back for one final day as a Dynamo player.
A long stint with Houston has prompted Davis and the team to arrange a special retirement.

Davis will sign a one-day contract Thursday that will allow him to retire as a member of the Dynamo, for which he played from 2006 to 2015. During his stint Houston won back-to-back MLS Cup titles in 2006 and 2007, and reached consecutive finals in 2011 and 2012.

He scored 43 of 57 regular-season goals as a Dynamo player. In seven of his 10 seasons with Houston he reached double-digits in assists and in two other seasons logged eight and nine.

Davis holds the club records for games played (271), starts (252), minutes played (21,768), assists (104), and in several other categories.

He started his career in 2002 and in 15 MLS seasons with the MetroStars, Dallas, San Jose, Houston, and Sporting Kansas City, Davis – including postseason -- played 419 games, scored 60 goals, and bagged 132 assists. In regular season play with 123 assists he’s ranked third in league history, and in games played (392) he is fourth.

He was named an MLS All-Star six times and to the MLS Best XI in 2011. At the 2014 World Cup he started against Germany to earn his 17th and final U.S. cap. At the ceremonies Thursday, he will be joined by Dynamo president Chris Canetti and several former teammates.

This highlight compilation includes his first goal as a pro.

    Great career and strong soccer IQ. Native St. Louise player, if memory serves.
