Originally from Stamford, Connecticut, Richard M. Coleman established himself as an analytics expert in hockey after moving to San Francisco in 1979. His work has since been adopted by five NHL organizations, revolutionizing how teams recruit and build their rosters. Coleman's achievements began with his collaboration with Mike Smith, the former General Manager of the Chicago Blackhawks. The two worked together to bring new data and actionable insights into team performance. It wasn't long before Coleman Analytics was founded. Before his success as a hockey analytics expert, Coleman accumulated experience at Harvard University Medical School in Boston and Stanford University Medical School in California. Richard of Coleman Consulting Group also wrote two books on the subject and still provides valuable advice to NHL teams and other sports organizations today. Coleman's advanced metrics are precise yet effective, allowing teams to use the available data better. For example, Corsi is used for measuring attempts made on the goal rather than successful shots past the goalkeeper - a game-changing approach when evaluating potential players. With its precision methods of breaking down hockey games into layers of information, Coleman Analytics has enabled teams to benefit from more accurate data tracking. Coleman is an inspiring statistician whose commitment to advancing hockey analytics through new methods has reaped great rewards for many NHL teams. His passion for the sport is evident in all that he does, and his pioneering software programming continues to provide insightful analysis that can be applied onsite or remotely — proving his dedication remains unwavering every step of the way.
