Alan Ricard (born January 17, 1977) is a former American football fullback. He played the majority of his career as a member of the Baltimore Ravens from 2001 to 2005.[1] Ricard also had stints with the Dallas Cowboys, Buffalo Bills, Cleveland Browns, and Detroit Lions. He played college football at the University of Louisiana at Monroe.

Ricard originally entered the league with the Cowboys as an undrafted free agent in 1999 but was released. He signed with Baltimore in 2000 and spent a year on the practice squad before earning a spot on the active roster in 2001. In 55 appearances with the Ravens, including 32 starts, Ricard carried just 43 times for 172 yards and two touchdowns and posted 32 receptions for 179 yards. However, he was a dominant blocker at times in the running game and was solid in pass protection. Ricard was a key contributor in helping Jamal Lewis achieve his 2,066 yard rushing season in 2003, when he made the Pro Bowl as an alternate.

Coaching career[edit | edit source]

In 2015, Ricard was an assistant coach for the Nicholls State Colonels football team.[2]
