D.C. United today announced that the club has re-signed defender Chris Korb. In the 2013 season, Korb appeared and started in 30 games and became one of United’s most reliable players. Per club and League policy, exact terms of the deal were not disclosed.
“We are pleased to have re-signed Chris to a new deal,” said D.C. United General Manager Dave Kasper. “He has grown in each of his three seasons at the club, and his versatility to play at either outside back position provides us with great flexibility. We look forward to having Chris on board as we build for the future.”
Korb joined the Black-and-Red after being selected 31st overall from the University of Akron during the 2011 MLS SuperDraft. In his rookie season, the outside back started 12 games for United and registered two assists before becoming a permanent starter in his second season, appearing in 26 games (22 starts) and recording a career high three assists. Last year, he appeared and started in 30 games, second-best on the team, and registered 12 shots for the Black-and-Red. In three seasons with the club, he has appeared in 68 games (64 starts) and registered five assists while logging 5,771 minutes.
