Cobi N'Gai Jones (born June 16, 1970 in Detroit, Michigan) is a former American midfielder who briefly served as interim coach for Major League Soccer team Los Angeles Galaxy until Bruce Arena was hired for the job on August 18, 2008. Jones played for the Los Angeles Galaxy of Major League Soccer, with whom he had been since the team's inaugural season in 1996. He was one of a significant group of American national team stars who returned from overseas to aid the new American soccer league, coming home after spending half a season at Brazilian club Vasco da Gama. He is also the all-time leader in caps for the United States National Team.

After graduating from Westlake High School, Jones emerged as a talented player in college, making the prestigious UCLA soccer team as a non-scholarship player, but ultimately becoming one of its most successful soccer-playing graduates. While attending UCLA, Jones was a member of Lambda Chi Alpha, an international fraternity.

Jones began his professional career with Coventry City of the English Premier League and had trained with FC Köln of the Bundesliga.
