Former Sounders FC goalkeeper Terry Boss has been hired by his alma mater, the University of Tulsa, as an assistant coach for the men’s soccer team. Boss, 30, was forced to retire late last year due to repeated concussions and takes over for longtime assistant Colin Clarke, who retired after nine years with the program.
“We are excited to hire former player, Terry Boss, as a full-time coach,” said head coach Tom McIntosh in a news release. “Terry succeeded both academically and in his soccer career while at Tulsa, and has played professionally since 2004.
“He is going to help us address our goalkeeper training needs on a daily basis, as well as film work, recruiting and daily planning. Terry is a great addition to the staff with a work rate that is second to none, and he will be a great example for our players.”
Boss and his wife, Jessica, live in Tulsa. He has a USSF B coaching license and USSF goalkeeping license.
From the release: “At Tulsa, Boss (2000-04) started in 20 of 23 games, logged 1,920 minutes in goal, picked up 96 saves and six shutouts, and earned a career 1.17 goals-against average. He earned his bachelor’s degree in finance in 2004 from TU.”
Boss has been busy recently. A native of Philomath, Ore., he was a presenter at the Oregon Sports Award on Sunday with his brother, Kevin, and Kasey Keller at Nike headquarters.
