Coach Reed is the first and only head coach of the women's water polo team. He was named CWPA Southern Division Coach of the Year in 2003 when the Colonials won a program-record 18 games. Coach Reed earned the same honor on the men's side in 2007 after guiding GW to third place at the Eastern Championship and an end-of-season No. 17 national ranking.
With Coach Reed at the helm, 29 Colonials have been named to CWPA All-Southern Division teams. In addition, Marissa Stamler was selected to the CoSIDA Academic All-District Second Team in 2010 and Megan Walker was named the CWPA Scholar-Athlete of the Year in 2012.

Reed graduated from the University of Massachusetts in 1994 with a bachelor of science degree in sport management. At Massachusetts, he served as a captain on the nationally-ranked Minutemen's water polo squad and also competed on the swim team. He still owns the Massachusetts school record in the 1,000-yard freestyle with a time of 9:30.65.
In addition, Reed served as a graduate assistant in aquatics at Eastern Kentucky University, where he received a master of science degree in sport administration in 1997. He also is a member of the Collegiate Water Polo Association (CWPA) board of directors and won the CWPA's Southern Division Coach of the Year award in 2002-03.
Coach Reed lives in Fairfax, Va., with his wife, Allison. In March 2010, Reed was inducted into the Rhode Island Aquatic Hall of Fame.
