After 13 seasons, Jimmy Conrad is hanging up his cleats.

Conrad is scheduled to announce his retirement at a press conference at the Home Depot Center on Thursday, signaling the end to a standout career.

Known mostly for his play in San Jose, Kansas City and with the U.S. national team and his outgoing personality, the 34-year-old centerback played just two games for Chivas USA before suffering a concussion that ultimately ended his career. Conrad was selected in the Re-Entry Draft by the Goats and scored in his debut with the club, doing so against his former team, Kansas City.

In addition to his MLS exploits, which include four MLS Best XI nods and the 2005 MLS Defender of the Year award, Conrad participated in the 2006 World Cup for the national team, where he started the United States' match against Ghana.
