MOST COMMENTED

[MLS]Hall of FamerJeff Agoos, one of only two players to have won five MLS titles, has left the New York Red Bulls, where he served as technical director and then sporting director, to join MLS's league office as technical director for competition matters.

Agoos, a nine-time all-star in his 10-year career with D.C. United, the San Jose Earthquakes and MetroStars), will report to Nelson Rodriguez, executive vice president of competition and game operations on the planning and implementation of on-and-off field competition strategies.
 
“We consider ourselves fortunate to be adding a person of Jeff's caliber to our team,” Rodriguez said. “His vast playing experience and recent time in the front office of an MLS club make him the ideal person to help us plan and execute the next stage of development for the League's competition."

Agoos will oversee an annual league-wide technical assessment that includes suggestions for improving the league play.
 
"I am honored and privileged to be able to give back to the sport that gave me so much,” Agoos said. “I am looking forward to contributing to the continued growth of the sport in this country and am thrilled to be working alongside so many dedicated and professional people in MLS."

    Agoos was one of the Board Members voting on the Klinsmann decision. It will be interesting to see what enlightened ideas he comes up with in his new position!!!!!!!!

    Jeff Agoos is the one charged with improving league play? You have to be kidding me. Is it actually April 1 and not still March?
