National Director of Strength & Conditioning
Rich joins Area Scouts with a wealth of experience spanning multiple decades in professional and amateur sports.
He was the first full time strength and conditioning coach in the National Basketball Association when the New Jersey Nets hired him in 1987. He set the ground work for player development done in the N.B.A., both in season, and off season. His off season manual for his players has been used by countless basketball coaches in the USA and Europe as a guideline for their own programs over the years. He coached in the NBA for 24 seasons, 22 with the New Jersey Nets, and 35 seasons in professional basketball overall, including as an Assistant Coach/Director of Player Development for the Cleveland Cavaliers for two seasons. Rich was the first player development coach in the NBA to also be named an Assistant Coach.
In 1985 Rich was one of 12 coaches from North and South America to be invited to study at the Soviet Institute of Sport, in Moscow, USSR. It was the first program of its kind, and since has expanded to studies in other European countries. The courses were taught by the leading experts of the Soviet sports machine that ruled almost all sports during that period of time.
In 1986 Rich became one of the first coaches in the world to become a Certified Expert, when the National Strength and Conditioning Association gave a Certification exam for the first time.
In 1992 Rich ventured to Europe, becoming one of the only Americans to be hired as Director of Player Development, working first with Phonola Caserta and Fortitudo Bologna . Both teams were in the Italian A-1 league, and made it to the league Finals. In Italy he introduced a new system of training for basketball. His workouts were all sports specific to basketball, much different, than the methods used prior to his arrival, which were Soccer programs used by the basketball teams. The system took off and is the norm in Europe today.
This method caught the eyes of the Italian National Team who appointed him Director of Player Development in 2001. The National Team had some its greatest moments during his tenure, winning a Bronze Medal at the 2003 European Championships, in Stockholm, Sweden, and a Silver Medal at the 2004 Athens Olympic Games. The Italian Basketball Federation asked Rich to develop a Certification Program for basketball coaches to ensure proper instruction with player development.
Rich has worked extensively in Europe, & China during the off seasons conducting clinics and camps, and working with teams to help with their programs for player development. Armani Olimpia Milano, Montepaschi Siena, Benetton Treviso, Real Madrid, and Khimki Moscow, BC Kiev, BC Dnipro are some of Europe’s top teams which he consulted with for athletic development programs.
In 2011 he was appointed assistant coach for the Ukrainian National Basketball Team, where they qualified for the World Championships in 2014.
Rich’s resume also includes stops at the University of Mississippi, the New York Giants (NFL), personal trainer for recording artist, and actor Jon Bon Jovi, Rutgers University and the NBA Elite Academy in Hangzhou, China.
Most recently, Rich was Director of Player Development for BC Dnipro of the Ukrainian Super League.

With 13 years of professional baseball under his belt, including 7 as a big league player, Brandon is excited to share his wealth of knowledge and experience with the Area Scouts community.
Guyer is recognized as a Hall of Fame baseball player at both Herndon High School and the University of Virginia.

A couple months later, Brandon started his online training platform Fully Equipped Athlete and has since become a Precision Nutrition Certified Coach, NESTA Certified Sports Nutritionist and a Brian Cain Certified Mental Performance Mastery Coach. The mission behind FEA is to help athletes bridge the gap between performance and potential with good nutrition and an elite mindset.
