The Houston Dynamo today announced the appointment of Matt Jordan as vice president/general manager to oversee soccer operations and the technical areas of the club.

Jordan joins the Dynamo after four seasons with the technical staff of the Montreal Impact, most recently serving the role of technical director. The 39-year-old enjoyed a 13-year professional career highlighted by eight years in Major League Soccer as well as time in the Danish Superliga and North American Soccer League. The Clemson University product was a two-time All-American, an MLS All-Star and finalist for Goalkeeper of the Year in 1999 with the Dallas Burn.

“I am pleased to be adding one of the brightest young technical minds in Major League Soccer to our staff,” said Dynamo president Chris Canetti. “Matt is hard working, experienced, intelligent, passionate, and committed to winning. I am confident that he is going to elevate our club’s technical operations to a higher level.”

With Montreal, Jordan’s duties included all areas related to the soccer operations, including contract negotiations, player scouting, strategic planning, salary cap management and technical operations budget. During his stint with the Impact, Jordan was involved in the process of signing several notable foreign players including Italians Marco Di Vaio and Alessandro Nesta and Argentine midfielders Ignacio Piatti, Hernan Bernardello and Andres Romero. Jordan also led the initiative to launch a new USL Pro franchise under Impact management, FC Montreal, for the 2015 season.
