Coaching Xcellence is managed by me, Rich Hoyt, a high school basketball coach and educator. I love helping coaches and athletes become better at what they do!
Most coaches are driven, growth mindset, individuals. Coaching Xcellence is designed to provide resources for coaches of all sports to grow and become better in their craft.
I write about coaching of all sports, leadership, spirituality in sports, and motivation. You will find I reference basketball the most as that is my coaching passion. I enjoy reading about leadership, coaches from all sports, and successful people, and will often review my readings.
I speak occasionally on topics related to my work, including:
- Color Analyst – Xavier University Women’s Basketball, Big East Digital Network Basketball Analyst
- University of Notre Play Like A Champion Today Program Trainer
I earned a B.S. in Sport Management at Indiana University and a M.Ed. in Sports Administration from Xavier University. I have coached high school basketball in Cincinnati, Ohio, for ten years. While Head Boys’ Basketball Coach at The Summit Country Day School, I was honored as the Cincinnati Enquirer and Greater Cincinnati Basketball Hall of Fame Division 4 Coach of the Year in 2009. I am the author of the book Finishing The Job (www.FinishingTheJob.com) and was a contributor to Jeff Janssen’s book How to Develop Relentless Competitors.
I am married to Kim Powers Hoyt, a former NCAA National Champion Diver, and have two children (Lucas and Mallory).
