The Goldbergs and Schooled Wiki

Richard "Rick" Mellor (born December 5, 1947) is the Physical Education coach at William Penn Academy, a recurring character in The Goldbergs and a main character in Schooled. He is portrayed by Bryan Callen.


In seasons 1-6 of The Goldbergs, Rick is the Physical Education coach at William Penn Academy. He takes his job very seriously, and seems to have a habit of giving nicknames to the kids he teaches (commonly referring to Adam Goldberg as "Goldfarb" and Erica as "Girl Goldberg"). In Season 6, he leaves William Penn to train wrestlers, leaving his job to his brother Nick. We learn in Schooled that he eventually returned.

Personal Life

Not a lot is known about Rick's life outside of school. He previously dated Susan Cinoman, the drama teacher at William Penn, but the relationship ended seven years prior to the events of "I'll Be There For You", despite the fact that Rick believed they were simply "on a break". In Schooled, he is currently in a relationship with a woman named Julie.
