Andy Atuegbu (ah-two-ay-boo) is a former Nigerian football midfielder. Atuegbu was a star midfielder for the University of San Francisco from 1974 to 1977. The Dons won the NCAA championship two of Atuegbu's four seasons with the team, 1975 and 1976. His outstanding play led to his selection as a first team All American in 1976. He also earned second team All American recognition in 1975 and 1977.

The Oakland Stompers of the North American Soccer League (NASL) drafted Atuegbu in 1978 and he spent that season with the Stompers. The team folded at the end of the 1978 season and Atuegbu moved to the Edmonton Drillers for the 1979 NASL season. In the fall of 1979, he signed with the Hartford Hellions of the Major Indoor Soccer League. After one season, he moved to the San Francisco Fog where he played the 1980-1981 season. He later played for the amateur Greek-American A.C. when it won the 1985 U.S. Open Cup.

Soccer America Magazine named Atuegbu to their College Team of the Century.

While retired from professional soccer, Atuegbu continues to play for fun.
