Richieis Senior Skills & Kicking Coach in Leinster since June 2010.
He previously held the position of Rugby Development Officer and Elite Player Development Officer where he oversaw the province's underage development programme.
The ex-Leinster out-half was educated in Presentation College, Bray where he captained his school to the 1990 Leinster Schools Junior Cup.
The 38-year-old has been working with the Senior squad for the last number of years as Skills & Kicking Coach and has played a key role in the development of such home-grown kicking talent as Jonathan Sexton and Ian Madigan.
Richie has been an important part of the backroom team for the province's Heineken Cup successes in 2011 and 2012, and Leinster's back-to-back PRO12 titles in 2013 and 2014.
Richie was a member of the backroom staff for Ireland's 2014 RBS Six Nations Championship winning campaign.
