HOUSTON (SPORTSRADIO 610) –  Dynamo goalkeeper Tyler Deric has been reinstated by the MLS. 

With the reinstatement, Deric can resume team activities and competition.  The Dynamo have elected to loan Deric to Rio Grande Valley FC, the team’s USL affiliate. 

Deric was suspended during last season’s MLS Cup playoffs after his arrest and misdemeanor charge of assault. 

The press release from the MLS states;

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.

Because of the court order, and the 19 matches missed by Deric, the league felt that was sufficient in his case.
