Ryan Madry was named an assistant coach on the Seattle University men's basketball coaching staff on April 12, 2017.
Madry recently completed six seasons as an assistant coach at UC Santa Barbara, serving as one of the staff’s primary recruiters while also handling numerous on-court duties. During his six seasons with the Gauchos, UCSB reached the postseason three times and posted four seasons of 19-plus wins.
"Ryan has been a part of coaching teams into the postseason at UC Santa Barbara,” said Head Coach Jim Hayford. “He has a background of recruiting high caliber students to a strong academic school.”
Madry spent the 2010-11 season as the director of basketball operations at Cal State Fullerton before joining the Gauchos' staff. Before CSUF, he spent two years (2008-10) as the video coordinator at the University of San Francisco.
In 2007-08, he was the co-head coach at West Valley College in Saratoga, Calif., and in 2006-07 he served as an assistant coach for the Vikings. Madry's first coaching experience came in 2005-06 at his alma mater, the University of West Georgia, where he was a graduate assistant.
“I cannot put into words how excited I am to be a part of the Seattle University basketball program,” said Madry. “This city and university are incredibly special, and Coach Hayford's record speaks for itself. This is a great opportunity and I look forward to helping Coach Hayford build here at Seattle U.”
A native of the Bay Area, Madry played two seasons at West Valley College, then concluded his collegiate career at the University of West Georgia, where he served as co-captain his senior season. He earned his bachelor's degree in sports management from West Georgia in 2006.
Madry and his wife, Katherine, have one daughter, Skylar.
