As part of his last two seasons at Virginia, Boss has mentored goalkeeper Jeff Caldwell, who has twice earned All-ACC laurels, becoming just the third keeper in program history to earn all-conference honors on multiple occasions.
Boss's first season at Virginia was a memorable one as the Cavaliers went 14-6-3 and rolled to the national championship. Goalkeeper Calle Brown was named the Most Valuable Defensive Player of the NCAA College Cup as UVA recorded clean sheets in wins over UMBC and UCLA.
Boss spent the 2013 season as an assistant coach at Oregon State after working as his alma mater, Tulsa. While an assistant at TU in 2012, Boss helped the Golden Hurricane to a 14-6-1 overall record and a Conference USA Tournament championship as the team advanced to the NCAA round of 16. Tulsa recorded eight shutouts and faced five opponents ranked among the nation's top-25.
Boss played professionally for eight seasons before retiring in 2012. His last three seasons were spent playing for the Seattle Sounders of Major League Soccer. During his time in Seattle, he played with Kasey Keller, one of the premier American goalkeepers of all time. As a Sounder, Boss won three consecutive US Open Cup titles and played against some of the best clubs in the world, including Chelsea, Barcelona, Manchester United, Celtic, Chivas de Guadalajara and Boca Juniors.
Boss played for three years with Major League Soccer's Seattle Sounders (2009-12). Prior to that, he was with the New York Red Bulls (2008-09), as well as the United Soccer League's Charlotte Eagles (2005, 2008) and Puerto Rico Islanders (2006-07). He was also a member of the Puerto Rico National Team from 2009-12. Boss recorded 10 caps for his national team and helped Puerto Rico compete in the 2010 and 2014 preliminary World Cup Qualifying Rounds.
During his tenure with the Sounders, Boss started eight games, logging 765 minutes in goal. He picked up 28 saves and three shutouts, and posted a 6-2-1 record. Before his MLS career, Boss earned USL-2 Goalkeeper of the Year honors while helping the Charlotte Eagles reach the USL-2 Championship match in 2008. During that season, Boss had a league-leading 11 wins and nine shutouts, and was ranked second with a 0.69 goals-against average.
Boss earned his bachelor's degree in finance in 2004 from Tulsa. He has a USSF B License and USSF Goalkeeping License.
A Philomath, Oregon, native, Boss is married to Hannah. His brother, Kevin, won a Super Bowl championship and played tight end with the New York Giants.
