Boss played seven seasons as a pro before retiring in 2012. He spent time with the New York Red Bulls and backed up Kasey Keller at the Seattle Sounders. He also played for the Charlotte Eagles and Puerto Rico Islanders and represented Puerto Rico in World Cup qualifying. He helped the Eagles to the 2008 USL-2 title and was honored with the league’s Goalkeeper of the Year award.

"No one I ever played with worked harder than Terry," said Keller. "When he was given the news that he had to retire from playing, he focused that tremendous work ethic into transforming himself into a great coach.  Nobody deserves this more."
