- Shooting Coach/Player Development Coach
Rob Fodor begins his fourth season with the HEAT and his first in the role of Shooting Coach/Player Development Coach. Fodor, the first full-time Shooting Coach in franchise history, joined the HEAT as Shooting Consultant prior to the start of the 2016-17 season. His duties include providing each player with individual attention in an effort to improve their shooting mechanics. Since Fodor’s arrival three years ago, the HEAT have set a new franchise record for three-point field goals made in each of his three seasons working with the team and last season set the franchise record for points in a season.
Fodor has spent his entire adult life around the game of basketball, serving as an entrepreneur and consultant for over 30 years. His resume includes time spent coaching and teaching shooting in Norway, Germany, Spain, Singapore and Slovenia. Additionally, he’s served as the personal shooting instructor for former HEAT players Tim Hardaway, Alonzo Mourning, Jim Jackson and Mike James among many others and has served stints as an assistant coach with both the WNBA’s Seattle Storm and the now defunct Florida Pitbulls of the ABA. Joining the HEAT proved to be an easy transition as he has worked with Head Coach Erik Spoelstra over the years, assisting with camps and player development at his academy. Fodor is the owner of The Shooting Guy, a basketball website dedicated to the science of player development.
A native of Detroit (MI), Fodor graduated from Hillsdale College (MI) where he majored in history and minored in psychology and physical education. He was a starter all four years at Hillsdale and still owns the school record for career assists.
Fodor resides in Coconut Grove.
