Tomas Robert Ryde (born August 1960)[1] is a retired Swedish handball coach who last trained the Romanian women's national team.

At the end of the 2007-08 season, he left Danish Viborg 'for family reasons' to return to Sweden. His assistant coach Jakob Vestergaard then took over as head coach after Ryde.[2]

Ryde took over the position as head coach of the Romanian women's national team by mid-March 2015 after being previously eyed for Romania Women job in 2008.[3][4]

On 4 October 2016, the Romanian Handball Federation (FRH) and Ryde have reached an agreement to terminate the employment contract by mutual agreement after 16 months. Ryde will now dedicate himself to a business career.[5]
