WASHINGTON, D.C. - D.C. United announced today that the club has waived goalkeeper Doug Warren. The 23-year-old Clemson University product was drafted by United in the second round (14th overall) of the 2003 SuperDraft.
"We appreciate the work and effort that Doug has given to the organization," said United technical director Dave Kasper. "And we wish him the best of luck in the future."
Warren started the 2003 season as the backup to Nick Rimando, but was thrust into the starting lineup after Rimando suffered a knee injury on September 25. He made five appearances (four starts) during the regular season, posting a 1.34 goals against average. Warren also was the starting keeper in United's two playoff games last season, both losses to the Chicago Fire.
This season, Warren appeared in one game for the Black-and-Red, playing the full 90 minutes in a 3-2 loss to the MetroStars at Giants Stadium on April 14.
