Houston Dynamo hands Cabrera and Jordan contract extensions

Head coach Wilmer Cabrera, who led the Houston Dynamo back to the MLS playoffs in his first season in charge, and Matt Jordan, the Dynamo's general manager since 2014, are both under contract through the 2020 season after receiving extensions.

“Matt and Wilmer have proven to be an excellent team who can deliver results," said Dynamo president Chris Canetti. “They are fully aligned as to the vision and plan for our club’s success. As we look to the future, we have complete confidence in their collective ability to execute that vision and plan and lead us to our goals.”

The Dynamo scored a club-record 57 goals and went 12-1-4 at home in regular-season play to make the playoffs for the first time since 2013. It reached the Western Conference final, marking its seventh trip to MLS's final four in 12 seasons.
Jordan, who now takes on the title of senior vice president, joined the Dynamo as vice president and general manager in 2014 after spending four years in the front office of the Montreal Impact. He was a goalkeeper at Clemson and played 117 games in MLS with Dallas and Columbus.

Cabrera, a former Colombian international who moved to the United States in 2003, was hired from the Dynamo's USL affiliate RGV FC, which he coached in its 2016 launch. He had been the head coach of Chivas USA before his demise and served as the U.S. U-17 national team's head coach for two cycles.
