From a very early age on, Rodríguez showed great skill and talent. After being selected by C.D. Juventud Olímpica Metalio then Alianza F.C., he began a prolific football career, in the process becoming a legend in El Salvador, although not as highly rated as Mágico González.
A defender, Rodríguez played professionally for different clubs around the world. Among these were El Salvador's Alianza F.C., Mexico's Club Léon and F.C. Atlas, and Germany's Bayer Uerdingen (now known as KFC Uerdingen 05). He also played for teams in Japan's Yokohama Flugels, NKK F.C. and Finland's KPV scoring 4 goals in 18 games during 1984–1985.
After retiring from football, Rodríguez started a coaching career at Alianza F.C., but was sacked in 2002. Since then, he has been a strong advocate for improvement in football organisations and programs in El Salvador. He has also been a strong supporter for financial aid to Salvadoran sporting heroes of the past who are in need.
Since 2009, he is President of the Salvadoran Institute of Sport (INDES) and was appointed coordinator of the Salvadoran national football team and in 2007 became the assistant coach of the Cuscatlecos. He was also the main reason that "La Selecta", the way the national football team is called, was eliminated from any possibility to classify to the World Cup 2014. He made many last minute changes to the team, and this affected their performance and organization.
Rodríguez has participated in a charity match to raise funds for earthquake victims in his native El Salvador.
