Ricky Fried is now in his 10th season at the helm of the Hoya program after serving as a Georgetown assistant coach in 2003 and 2004.

In his first nine seasons, Fried has led the Hoyas to a 106-58 overall record and a 49-10 record in BIG EAST regular season games.

Under Fried, Georgetown has earned six BIG EAST regular season titles, made five trips to the BIG EAST Tournament Championship Game winning in 2010 and has advanced to the NCAA Tournament six times, reaching the quarterfinals twice.

Fried has coached 22 national All-Americans as well as the National Goalie of the Year, two BIG EAST Attackers of the Year, two Midfielders of the Year and five Defensive Players of the Year to go along with 51 BIG EAST first or second team selections. Additionally, he and his staff have won BIG EAST Staff of the Year on two occasions.

Last season, the Hoyas advanced to both the NCAA and BIG EAST Tournaments with a record of 13-6. Caroline Tarzian and Ashley Hunter were both All-Americans as well as five players earning All-BIG EAST honors.

Fried was named associate head coach for the Hoyas in November 2003 and was involved in all aspects of the Hoya program but focused on an offensive unit that became one of the most potent in the nation. On the other side of the field, in 2003, Georgetown led the nation in caused turnovers.

Prior to Georgetown, Fried was an assistant coach at Johns Hopkins University for nine seasons. While at the school, Fried served as the recruiting coordinator and helped build Hopkins into a Division I Top 20 program after aiding in the transition from a strong D-III program.

A 1988 graduate of the University of Maryland-Baltimore County (UMBC), Fried was an All-American where he was a midfielder for the Retrievers lacrosse team. As a senior, he served as team captain, was named the team's Most Valuable Player and earned the team's Leadership Award. He was named to UMBC's All-Time Team in 1990.

Fried arrived at Hopkins following a two-year stint as an assistant coach at the Gilman School and serving a season as an assistant at his alma mater. He also played professionally with the Philadelphia Wings from 1989-92 and 1997 and the Baltimore Thunder from 1993-94.

Fried is also active in the Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association (IWLCA) and has served as the organization's vice president, on the board of directors, on its ethics and recruiting tournaments committees. Currently, he is on the Regional All-American Committee and is a member of the Tewaaraton Trophy Committee.

After serving as an assistant coach for the U.S. Women's Lacrosse Elite Team for three years, Fried was named the head coach of the national team in August of 2009.

After leading Team USA to an undefeated gold medal this past summer at the Federation of International Lacrosse World Cup in Oshawa, Canada, his position was renewed through 2017. It marked his second World Cup gold after winning in the summer of 2009 as an assistant in Prague, Czech Republic.

As the head coach of the national team, Fried appoints assistant coaches, identifies talented players for the squad and advises on the direction women's lacrosse takes in the United States.

He, his wife, Halyna, and their children, Jack (10) and Paige (8), reside in Columbia, Md.
