Ryan is one of three sons, born to Joselyn and her husband Ira Coogler. When Ryan turned eight, he and his family moved to Richmond, California; while in his youth, Ryan excelled in football and tracks, while attending private Catholic high school in Berkeley, California, Mary`s College; after matriculation, he received a sports scholarship to enroll at Saint Mary`s College of California. However, the college canceled their football program, and so Ryan transferred to Sacramento State, where his football career reached a whole new level. In four years, Ryan made 112 receptions for 1,213 yards and six touchdowns. He graduated with a degree in finance, however, he also became interested in film making, and took as many classes about film and the industr, as possible, around his football training and matches. Following his graduation from Sacramento State, Ryan enrolled USC School of Cinematic Arts, where his career began.

His first film, although short, came out in 2009, entitled “Locks”, for which he also wrote the script, and became an immediate success. Two years later he released his second short film – “Fig”, which became even more successful than its predecessor. The same year, he directed two more short films “The Sculptor” and “Gap”, the latter winning the Jack Nicholson Award for Achievement in Directing. His net worth was established.

In 2013, Ryan made his debut in feature films; “Fruitvale Station” is a story about a man named Oscar Grant who was shot by a police officer, and features Michael B. Jordan, Octavia Spencer and Melonie Diaz in the lead roles. Its success saw the rights for the film bought by The Weinstein Company for $2 million, and it also garnered numerous awards for Ryan, including the Independent Spirit Award. His net worth was boosted, too.

After the success of his first full length film, Ryan`s name became rather known in the filmmaking business, and soon he was invited by MGM to direct “Creed”, a spin-off film of the “Rocky” franchise, and for which Ryan also wrote the script, with the help of Aaron Covington. The film came out in 2015, and became his best so far, receiving numerous awards including the AAFCA Award in category Best Director, Black Reel in category Outstanding Director, and the Image Award in category Outstanding Writing in a Motion Picture, which he shared with Aaron Covington. The success of “Creed” increased Ryan`s net worth by a large margin, since the film grossed over $100 million.

For the time being, Ryan is working on Marvel`s “Black Panther”, which will be released somewhere in 2018.

Apart from being a successful director and screenwriter, Ryan also works as a counselor with inmates at San Francisco`s Juvenile Hall, a position his father held in the past.

Regarding his personal life, Ryan has been married to Zinzi Evans since early 2016.

#Fact
1 Ryan cast his brother Keenan Coogler in his breakout debut film Fruitvale Station (2013). And like Ryan, Keenan was also a standout football player in a Bay Area college.
2 Has worked as a security guard, and also with imprisoned youth at San Francisco's Juvenile Hall.
3 Partnered with Oscar-winning actor Forest Whitaker who agreed to develop and produce his first feature-film project, Fruitvale Station (2013).
4 Grew up in Richmond, CA in the East Bay area north of Oakland, CA. He attended nearby Saint Mary's College on a football scholarship, then transferred to Sacramento State College. Later he was a graduate student in the University of Southern California School of Cinematic Arts.

#Quote
1 [re Oscar Grant's murder] It really caused an identity crisis here in the Bay Area because we think of ourselves as the most progressive place, the most diverse place, the most accepting place in the country. I grew up with white friends, Asian friends - Vietnamese, Chinese, Pacific Islanders. I had Hispanic friends, not just Mexican friends, but Guatemalan friends, Honduran friends, and we knew the difference, you know? So when we saw that happen to Oscar, and we saw it on video, it was like the wind getting knocked out of us. I was questioning who we were as a community.
2 [re making Fruitvale Station (2013)] We shot here [BART station] for three nights after the station was closed, Everybody was there with us: BART employees, safety monitors, train drivers, all the cast members and crew. Some of us would pray; others would just keep to themselves. The energy of it hit everybody. It was the hardest thing I've done in my life, making this movie. Having to see [real-life hero] Oscar die so many times. And having to see the people react to it. That never gets easy, man. Never.
