Richard L. "Dick" Farley (April 13, 1932 – October 1, 1969) was an American professional basketball player.

A 6'4" (1.93 m) guard/forward from Winslow, Indiana, Farley played for the 1953 Indiana University national championship team. He also played three seasons (1954–1956; 1958–1959) in the National Basketball Association as a member of the Syracuse Nationals and Detroit Pistons. He averaged 6.5 points per game in his career and won a league title with Syracuse in 1955.

Farley previously held the NBA record for the shortest amount of time on the floor before fouling out in a game, with five minutes' playing time, set on March 12, 1956. The record stood for 41 years until the Dallas Mavericks' Bubba Wells broke it by getting himself disqualified in just 3 minutes on December 29, 1997.[1]
