Prior to his work at Canyon Crest, Ryan was the boy's freshman head coach at nearby Torrey Pines High School, where he guided the team to league championships all four seasons (2000-04). In his final season, the team posted a school-record 20-2 mark.

Ryan's collegiate coaching career began in Arlington, Va., at Marymount University as an assistant men's coach in 1988. He then moved on to Ocean County College in Toms River, N.J., and was the men's head coach from 1991-93, leading the team to a No. 9 national ranking and a 16-7 overall record, the best in the program's history.

Ryan also spent time coaching at Montgomery College (1993-95) in Maryland. He started out as an assistant men's coach for two seasons, helping the team to a 21-9 record and a third-place finish at the national tournament in 1994. In Ryan's final year at Montgomery, he served as the women's head coach, with his team pacing the nation in scoring and finishing the season ranked No. 1 nationally. He was named the NJCAA District F and NJCAA Region XX Coach of the Year.

In addition, Ryan spent three years at the College of Lake County (1996-98) in Grayslake, Ill., and one season at the University of San Diego (1998-99).
