Richard Guy "Dick" Shrider (February 7, 1923 – January 21, 2014) was an American professional basketball player and college coach.[1] Shrider was selected in the 1948 BAA Draft by the New York Knicks after a collegiate career at Ohio.[1] He played for the Knicks for four total games in 1948 before then playing in the National Basketball League for the Detroit Vagabond Kings.[1][2]

Coaching career[edit]

Shrider then became a high school boys' basketball coach at Gallipolis High School until 1955, at which point he took over the boys' basketball team at Fairborn High School.[3] In 1957, Miami University of Ohio named him as their new head coach. In 1957–58, his first season, Shrider's Redskins (now RedHawks) went undefeated against Mid-American Conference (MAC) opponents.[3] They became the first MAC team to ever win an NCAA Tournament game that year as well.[3] During Shrider's nine seasons as Miami's head coach he led them to four MAC championships and two NCAA Tournament appearances (1958, 1966).[4] He compiled an overall record of 126–96, and in 1996 he was named an honoree of the school's "Cradle of Coaches" award.[3][4]

After retiring from coaching in 1966, Shrider stayed as the school's athletic director until 1988.[3]
