HOUSTON – The Houston Dynamo have parted ways with head coach Wilmer Cabrera, KPRC 2 Sports has learned.

Cabrera was in his third season with the team after being hired following the 2016 season. In his time with the team, the Dynamo compiled a 22-29-22 record.

“We’d like to thank Wilmer for all of his hard work and dedication over the course of the last two and a half seasons with the Houston Dynamo, including last year’s U.S. Open Cup title.
