Richard Monteleone (born March 22, 1963 in Tampa, FL) is a former professional baseball pitcher and coach.

Rich was the first round pick (20th overall) for the Detroit Tigers in the 1982 draft. However, he began his major league career at 24 years old with the Seattle Mariners in 1987. After a year in Seattle, he pitched relief for the California Angels from 1988 to 1989, the New York Yankees from 1990 to 1993, the San Francisco Giants in 1994, and the Angels again from 1995 to 1996. In 1995, he started the season in Nippon Professional Baseball (NPB) with the Chunichi Dragons before returning to the Angels.

After his last season as a player in 1996, Monteleone signed up as a coach for the Yankees, where he has remained ever since. While he was most recently with the big league team, Rich has also coached Yankees' minor league teams during his tenure. From 2002 to 2008, Monteleone served as the bullpen coach for the Yankees.

Monteleone holds the Major League career record for most pitching appearances without a start or a save with 210.
