Robert William Weiss (born May 7, 1942) is an American professional basketball coach and former professional basketball player and coach.
The NBA's Philadelphia 76ers selected Weiss in the 1965 NBA Draft. Weiss interspersed his career with the 76ers with a short stint in the Eastern Professional Basketball League, playing for the Wilmington Blue Bombers. He led the EBL in assists in the 1966-67 season and was named to the EBL All-Star First Team.
Weiss was a member of the 76ers' 1967 championship team, after which he was taken by the Seattle SuperSonics in the 1967 NBA Expansion Draft. Weiss played in the NBA for twelve seasons, including six with the Chicago Bulls.
After retiring as a player in 1977, Weiss briefly worked for an investment firm in Anaheim, California. In 1978, he joined the San Diego Clippers as an assistant coach. In 1980, he moved to the Dallas Mavericks, an expansion franchise.
After six years in Dallas, Weiss accepted his first head coaching job in 1986 with the San Antonio Spurs. He coached the Spurs for two seasons, never posting a winning record. He did, however, lead them to the playoffs in 1988.
Weiss left the Hawks in 1993. He spent one year as head coach of the Los Angeles Clippers before joining the SuperSonics as an assistant coach. He served in that post for 12 years under both George Karl and Nate McMillan, going to the NBA Finals in 1996. He was promoted to head coach in 2005 after McMillan left for the Portland Trail Blazers. However, Weiss did not last even one season, as the Sonics struggled to a losing record. After a 13-17 start to the 2005-06 season, his three-year deal was terminated on January 3, 2006 and he was replaced with Bob Hill.
