Ricky Fried is now in his 14th season at the helm of the Hoya program after serving as a Georgetown assistant coach in 2003 and 2004.

In his first 13 seasons, Fried has led the Hoyas to a 139-97 overall record and a 71-17 record in BIG EAST regular season games. During the 2014 season, he became the winningest coach in program history following a 13-6 win over Temple on April 19.

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

Fried has coached 22 All-Americans as well as the National Goalie of the Year, two BIG EAST Attackers of the Year, three Midfielders of the Year and five Defensive Players of the Year to go along with 72 All-BIG EAST first and second team selections. Additionally, he and his staff have won BIG EAST Staff of the Year on two occasions.

In 2017, Georgetown went 9-9 with a mark of 7-2 in BIG EAST Conference play. The squad earned a BIG EAST Championship berth marking GU's 11th-consecutive trip to the conference postseason. The Blue & Gray had one player named all-region and five All-BIG EAST honorees including BIG EAST Midfielder of the Year Francesca Whitehurst.

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 in to 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-America 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 the chair of 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 2009. He held the position until fall 2017.

After leading Team USA to an undefeated gold medal in 2013 at the Federation of International Lacrosse World Cup in Oshawa, Ontario, 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. He won his third and final gold medal in the summer of 2017 at the World Cup in Guildford, England.

Fried currently serves as the head coach of the Philadelphia Fire of the WPLL.

He, his wife Halyna, and their children, Jack (14) and Paige (12), reside in Columbia, Md.
