2021
Kevin Garcia re-signed with FC Tulsa on a new contract prior to the 2021 USL Championship season.

2020
Garcia was initially signed by FC Tulsa just before the start of the 2020 season on February 28, after spending the previous four seasons with the Houston Dynamo FC organization. Garcia played every minute of the 2020 season for FC Tulsa, one of three players to start and finish all 16 matches.

He ranked 1st on the club in blocks and interceptions and 2nd in clearances in 2020. 

2017-2019 - HOUSTON DYNAMO FC 
Garcia's standout 2016 season earned him a contract with the Dynamo in 2017 and over the next three seasons, Garcia would make 38 appearances for Houston in MLS. He was a part of the Dynamo’s 2018 U.S. Open Cup title-winning team, making four appearances for Houston in the tournament, and also scored his first MLS regular season goal that same season.

Garcia made 12 appearances for Houston in 2019 and made his CONCACAF Champions League debut against Tigres UANL of Liga MX.

2016 - RIO GRANDE VALLEY FC TOROS
