Rob Fodor is a well-known name in the world of basketball, currently serving as the Miami Heat's Shooting Coach/Player Development Coach. He holds the distinction of being the first full-time shooting coach in the franchise's history, having joined the HEAT as a Shooting Consultant before the 2016-17 season. In his role, Fodor is responsible for providing individual attention to each player to help them improve their shooting mechanics.
Since Fodor's appointment, the HEAT has seen significant improvements, setting a new franchise record for three-point field goals made in each of the three seasons he has worked with the team. Last season, they even set the franchise record for points in a season.
Fodor has been around the game of basketball his entire adult life, working as an entrepreneur and consultant for over three decades. He has taught and coached shooting in various countries, including Norway, Germany, Spain, Singapore, and Slovenia. In addition, he has also served as the personal shooting instructor for several former HEAT players, such as Tim Hardaway, Alonzo Mourning, Jim Jackson, and Mike James. Fodor has also worked as an assistant coach with both the WNBA's Seattle Storm and the now-defunct Florida Pitbulls of the ABA.
Fodor's association with the Miami Heat was a natural transition as he has worked with Head Coach Erik Spoelstra over the years, assisting with camps and player development at his academy. Fodor is also the owner of The Shooting Guy, a website dedicated to the science of player development. His wealth of experience and expertise in the field of basketball has helped him establish a remarkable reputation among players and coaches alike.
