Rodney  Belcher

In his first season on Baylor's coaching staff is Waco-native Rodney Belcher.

Belcher joined Dave Bliss' staff as an assistant coach in May 2002, in what was considered a homecoming of sorts. The 39-year-old is from Waco, and attended high school and junior college in the city.

Belcher came to Baylor from the University of New Mexico, where he spent the 2001-2002 season as an assistant to Fran Fraschilla.

Prior to UNM, Belcher coached at McKinney High School from 1998-2001, the last season as head coach. He was head coach at Bryan Adams High School in Dallas from 1994-98, where he coached future All-American and No. 1 NBA draft pick Kenyon Martin. Belcher also coached at Plano High School (1993-94) and Vines High School in Plano (1990-93).

Belcher has more than 10 years experience as an AAU coach in Texas, most recently with the Team Texas Select, a squad featuring the top players in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

A graduate of Waco High School and McLennan Community College, Belcher played basketball for coaches Jessie Williams and Ken DeWeese, respectively. He finished his career at North Texas under former Baylor assistant Tommy Newman, where he played from 1983-85.

Belcher and his wife Nafeesa are the parents of two, son Rodney Jr. and daughter Taliah. He is also the father of Marques Belcher and Alori Sheppard.
