Andre Bernard Gurode (last name pronounced as ger-ROD) (born March 6, 1978 in Houston, Texas) is an American football center for the Dallas Cowboys of the National Football League. He played high school football at North Shore High School. He was drafted with the fifth pick of the second round of the 2002 NFL Draft out of the University of Colorado.

On October 1, 2006, in the third quarter of a game against the Tennessee Titans, Titans defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth stomped on Gurode's head. Haynesworth's cleats caused a laceration requiring thirty stitches. Haynesworth was ejected, and subsequently suspended by the NFL for five games without pay.

He was named the starting center for the 2006 season following training camp, replacing Al Johnson.
