Jeffrey Alan "Jeff" Agoos (born May 2, 1968, in Geneva, Switzerland) is a retired American soccer defender, and one of the all-time appearance leaders for the United States national team.
Agoos (nicknamed Goose), was born in Switzerland, when his father, who was a U.S. diplomat, was posted there. However, he was raised in Texas, and won a record five MLS championships: three with D.C. United and two with the San Jose Earthquakes. He also won the 1996 U.S. Open Cup and was the 2001 MLS Defender of the Year. He was elected for induction into the National Soccer Hall of Fame in 2009.

Agoos attended J.J. Pearce High School in Richardson, Texas. He was named a two-time Parade Magazine High School All-American as well as a Dallas All-Sports Athlete-of-the-Year. Agoos was raised Jewish , and during the summer of 1985, was selected to represent the United States at the 1985 Maccabiah Games.

From 1986 to 1990, Agoos played soccer for Bruce Arena at the University of Virginia. During his four seasons with the Caveliers, earned First-Team All-American honors twice, in 1988 and 1990. He finished second in Hermann Award voting his senior season.
In 1989, his junior year, Virginia went to the NCAA championship game where it fought the University of Santa Clara to a 1–1 draw after 4 overtimes. While the teams wanted to continue to play, NCAA officials ended the game and declared the two teams co-champions. At the time there were no penalty kicks to end a tie. At the end of the season, Agoos represented the United States at the 1989 Maccabiah Games.

Upon graduating from college, Agoos played for the Maryland Bays of the A-League in 1991. On February 13, 1991, the Dallas Sidekicks of the Major Indoor Soccer League drafted Agoos with the second overall pick of the 1991 draft. He played in thirty games in the 1991–1992 season, scoring seven goals. In 1992, he left the Sidekicks to play full time for the U.S. national team, but Dallas again selected him in a draft, this time the 1993 Continental Indoor Soccer League (CISL) draft, but he did not re-sign with the team.

After being cut from the U.S. roster for the 1994 FIFA World Cup, Agoos moved to Germany, where he played for SV Wehen during the 1994–95 season.

After returning from Germany in 1995, he served as an assistant coach to Bruce Arena at the University of Virginia.
In 1996, Agoos returned to the United States to join Major League Soccer. In order to create a league, MLS allocated various recognized players to each team. As part of this process, the league allocated Agoos to D.C. United where he joined Bruce Arena, the team's first coach. That year, Agoos won the first MLS Championship as well as the U.S. Open Cup. He followed it up the next year with his second MLS Championship. In 1998, DC United achieved its greatest accomplishment when it defeated Vasco de Gama to take the Interamerican Cup. Agoos then won his third MLS Championship with DC United in 1999. He spent 2001 through 2004 with the San Jose Earthquakes, and proceeded to win his fourth and fifth MLS Championships.
Agoos was named MLS Defender of the Year in 2001 and earned a place in the MLS Best XI three times (1997, 1999, and 2001). In 2005, Agoos was named to the league's tenth anniversary All-Time Best XI.
He was traded to the MetroStars after the 2004 season for a fourth round draft pick. In ten years in MLS, Agoos scored 11 regular season goals and added 25 assists in 244 matches. In 2005, he was named to the MLS All-Time Best XI, before retiring December 8, 2005.
