Pat Riley Bio

Pat Riley Net Worth and Salary: Pat Riley is an American professional basketball executive, as well as a former coach and player in the NBA who has a net worth of $100 million. He is perhaps best known as the former head coach of the Miami Heat, a position that he held from 1995 until 2003 before once again coaching the team from 2005 to 2008. He also experienced considerable success with the Los Angeles Lakers during their “Showtime Era.” Over the course of his coaching career, Riley has won five NBA championships. These achievements have led many experts to call him one of the greatest NBA coaches of all time.

Early Life: Patrick James Riley was born on March 20th of 1945 in Rome, New York. Raised in Schenectady, Pat’s father was Leon Riley, a minor league baseball player who played in four games for the Philadelphia Phillies. During his high school years, Pat proved his potential as a basketball player and also played on the football team. He continued to play both football and basketball in college while attending the University of Kentucky.

Prior to his coaching career, Riley was also an accomplished player in the NBA. Today, he is best known as an executive. This wide range of roles within the NBA have allowed him to win a championship as a player, an assistant coach, as an executive, and as head coach. He was the first North American sports figure to accomplish this feat. In 2012, he was given the Chuck Daly Lifetime Achievement Award from the NBA Coaches Association.

By the time he had graduated high school, he was drafted by both the San Diego Rockets of the NBA and the Dallas Cowboys of the NFL. Although he could have pursued a career as a wide receiver, he opted instead for a life on the basketball court and joined the Rockets. During his playing career, he was eventually traded to the Los Angeles Lakers. In 1972, he helped the Lakers win the NBA Championship. Pat eventually finished his playing career after the 1975-76 season as a member of the Phoenix Suns.

Coaching Career: After a near-fatal bike accident injured Lakers coach Jack McKinney, Riley was called in to act as assistant coach to Paul Westhead. That year, the Lakers won the 1980 NBA Finals. Although the team failed to reach the playoffs next season, Riley was named head coach shortly afterwards and made a name for himself with his Armani suits and slicked back hair. This was the beginning of the “Showtime” era.

Riley stepped down as Lakers coach and joined the New York Knicks in 1991. He then resigned from the Knicks in 1995 to become the head coach of the Miami Heat. This tenure was slightly questionable, and Pat stepped down from the position in 2003. By 2005, Pat rejoined the team as head coach and managed to win the championship for the fifth time as a coach in 2006. He then became president of Miami Heat.

A strong defensive structure and an unyielding offense helped the Lakers make four consecutive appearances in the NBA Finals, winning three consecutive championships in the famed “three-peat.” Riley later trademarked that phrase.

In November 1988, Riley submitted an application to trademark the term “three-peat” through his corporate entity “Riles & Co.”. A few months later the application was approved and trademark #1552980 was granted. This meant that anytime someone used that phrase commercially, they would have to pay Pat Riley a licensing royalty.

“Three-peat” Trademark: Back in 1988 when Pat was coaching the Lakers, the team entered the NBA finals looking to secure their third straight championship. The phrase “three-peat” was a rallying cry in Laker nation. Unfortunately the three-peat did not end up happening when the Lakers were swept in four games by the Pistons. There was a silver lining for Pat Riley.
