Madry named to Seattle coaching staff

" [Ryan] 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 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..."
