Robert "Bob" McIntire Richey, Jr. (born March 22, 1983) is an American college basketball coach and current head coach at Furman.[1][2]

Coaching career[edit]

Richey's coaching career began at Charleston Southern in 2006, where he served on Barclay Radebaugh's staff until 2011. He joined the Furman staff under Jeff Jackson in 2011, and was retained as an assistant coach under Niko Medved. He served in the role until 2017, when he was elevated to interim head coach after Medved accepted the head coaching position at Drake. Richey coached the Paladins in its 2017 Postseason Tournament semifinal matchup, where it fell to St. Peters.

On April 7, 2017 the interim tag was lifted, and Richey became the 22nd head coach in Furman history.[3]
