Alumnus Trivedi joins men's basketball coaching staff
TORONTO - The Ryerson University Rams men’s basketball program is pleased to announce the appointment of Madhav Trivedi to its coaching staff.
Trivedi brings a wealth of experience from both the university and international levels. He was most recently the Lead Assistant Coach at McGill University where he helped lead the Redmen through the most successful period in program history, winning four Quebec championships during his five-year tenure.
Trivedi’s coaching career started at Ryerson before making the move to Queen’s University from 2011-2013.
Internationally, Trivedi has been on staff with the Cadet Men’s National team winning a bronze medal at the 2010 U17 FIBA World Championship and most recently serving as an advanced scout and video coordinator for the U18 Israeli National team.
“We are excited to welcome back one of our own in Muddy,” said Rams head coach Roy Rana. “He has extensive experience at the U SPORTS level as well as the international level. He understands our league as well as our community. He has a great ability to create meaningful relationships and building team culture, which fits perfectly with what we are trying to accomplish here.”
Prior to his coaching career, Trivedi played point guard for the Rams from 2005-2009, where he was a two-time Academic All-Canadian. He holds a degree in Child and Youth Care from Ryerson, a Bachelor of Education from Queen’s University and a Masters in Sport Sciences and Coach Education from Ohio University.
“As a Ryerson grad and a former student-athlete, I really believe that Muddy can help our student-athletes realize their full academic and athletic potential. He has been through it all and his knowledge will shine bright as he begins this new journey with us,” said Rana.
“I am thrilled to be coaching at the institution that has played an important role in the person that I am today. The program has come a long way and I look forward to helping the team and athletic department continue their upward progression,” said Trivedi in response to his return to his alma mater.
