Meet Chris Rodstrom! She is the lovely and beautiful wife of Pat Riley; the current team president of the Miami Heat since 1970. This couple’s story is an inspiring one, so keep reading to learn more about them!
Mr. and Mrs. Riley happily married for 43 years, and with an accomplished professional NBA coaching, this journey together may be such a cool ride! They found out about they had several things in common in 1968, after being introduced on a San Diego beach. Chris was at the time a junior majoring in Psychology at San Diego State, but dropped out of college to become Mrs. Riley!
Pat’s wife, a Maryland-born lady and the daughter of a Navy captain and nurse, later decided to complete her BA studies in 1972, and three years later she earned her master’s degree in Educational Psychology at Cal State Northridge.
Chris worked as a family therapist until she decided to give up her career in 1981 to play Pat’s personal assist leader.
When working together, Mrs. Riley used to have her perch located across the Forum from the Lakers bench so she could take in action on the floor and also keep an eye on her hubby. The love and passion for the sport aren’t all they share; they also have another special bond: both of them are huge fans of Bruce Springsteen!
Pat’s wife was his rock when in the middle of the 70’s, and he was going through a rough patch after putting an end to his playing career. The couple has now two children; James, and Elizabeth Riley. Chris and Pat are often photographed in social events together, such as the Kentucky Derby, the Haute Living & Hublot Annual Party, the AFI Life Achievement Awards, and in every NBA game!
