Roy Rana became the 11th coach in Ryerson men’s basketball history when he joined the Rams in 2009.

Entering his ninth year at the helm of the Rams in 2018-19, he has transformed the team into a competitive, nationally recognized program that has seen its best ever results.

Rana set the foundation for the program to win its first conference title in school history (in any sport) in 2015-16 and was able to replicate their success and repeat as Wilson Cup champions in 2016-17.

Rana has a regular season record of 116-53 with the Rams and has guided the team to five of its six all-time appearances at the U SPORTS national championship tournament.

Rana has made a name for himself in the U SPORTS game with the Rams but he’s also well-known in the national and international circles. He was named the Interim Head Coach of the Canadian Senior Men’s National Team for the FIBA Americup in 2017.

Previously, Rana was the head coach of the Canadian Junior Men’s National Team for five years which included a gold medal victory at the FIBA U19 World Cup to claim Canada’s first championship in an international FIBA-regulated event.

In addition to his coaching success at the international level, Rana has experienced a historic career as one of Canada's most successful high school coaches. In his nine year tenure as the Head Coach and program director at Eastern Commerce Collegiate Institute, the program set numerous records. Eastern Commerce became the first team in history to win four consecutive Ontario Championships.

With Rana at the helm at Eastern, the team finished six of his nine seasons as the No. 1 ranked team in Canada. During that time period, Eastern's record was 256-39 with an incredible .867 winning percentage.

As the Head Coach of Ontario's U17 Provincial Team, Rana led the team to the 2004 and 2005 National Championship, as well as Ontario's first ever Canada Summer Games Gold Medal in 2005.

Rana has received many Coaching accolades including the 2003, 2004, 2006 Canadian High School Coach of the Year and the 2003 Toronto Sun High School Coach of the Year. He was also awarded the 2009 High School Coach of the Year in Canada Award.
