Agoos serves on the COVID-19 Task Force Agoos and is responsible for all medical and testing protocols. Agoos joined MLS in April of 2011, after serving as Sporting Director and Technical Director for the New York Red Bulls.

Soccer fans know Agoos as a rock-solid fixture in the U.S. National Team defense for more than 15 years, including two FIFA World Cups and the 2000 Summer Olympic Games.

A 10-year MLS veteran, Agoos was named an MLS All-Star nine times while playing 244 games with three clubs: D.C. United, the San Jose Earthquakes and the MetroStars (now New York Red Bulls). He was selected to the MLS Best XI on three occasions, and to the league’s “All-Time Best XI,” the latter awarded to commemorate the league’s 10th anniversary in 2005.

Agoos played every minute of all five MLS Cup victories, winning three championships with D.C. United (1996, 1997 and 1999) and two with the San Jose Earthquakes (2001 and 2003). Agoos also won the 1996 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup with D.C.
