Coach Bachand saapuu Connecticutin osavaltiosta, jossa hän on valmentanut vuodesta 1983. Hän on uransa aikana valmentanut monia ikäluokkia aina PW sarjasta High Schooliin. Viime vuosina hän on toiminut omistajana ja päävalmentaja omassa SemiPro joukkuueessaan.

Mielenkiintoinen asia myös Bachandista on, että hänen SemiPro joukkueessaan on pelannut 170 ehdonalaisvankia, joista vain yksi on syyllistynyt rikoksiin uudestaan. Hän on pitänyt huolta, että pelaajat saavat töitä ja ovat kiireisiä jenkkifutiksen parissa, jotta heillä olisi mahdollisuus rakentaa elämä uudestaan.

Kysyimme Richardilta muutamia kommentteja urastaan ja tulevasta vuodesta:
