Tab Ramos

Houston Dynamo FC head coach Tab Ramos will miss their home game Saturday against Minnesota United FC (9 pm ET | MLS LIVE on ESPN+) after traveling to New Jersey earlier this week due to a medical emergency concerning a family member.

Assistant coach Omid Namazi will lead the Dynamo against the Loons as they look to break a 14-game winless stretch. They last secured three points in a May 22 match against Vancouver Whitecaps FC.

"I've been in touch with our technical staff every day this week and discussing every session that's been put together," Ramos said. "Tomorrow I will be in contact with the staff. We've handled this the best way we could have and I just want to thank the club for being supportive of me in this situation."

Houston sit bottom of the Western Conference standings with 19 points from 21 games. Their 10 draws are the second-most in MLS and trail only Nashville SC (11 draws).
