Richard R. Slager (born March 1954) was an American football quarterback and tennis player for Upper Arlington High School in Columbus, Ohio, and for the University of Notre Dame.[1] He was the chairman and CEO of VistaCare Hospice Services in Scottsdale, Arizona until March 2008.[2]

After backing up quarterback Tom Clements for two years at Notre Dame, Slager was named the starter by new head coach Dan Devine.[3] In an injury-plagued 1975 season, he completed 66 of 139 passes for 686 yards, often relieved by sophomore Joe Montana, en route to an 8-3 record. During his final season in 1976, Slager led the Irish to a 9-3 record and a top-20 ranking, completing 86 of 172 passes for 1,281 yards and 11 touchdowns.[4] After graduation, Slager served as a graduate assistant coach for three years while attending Notre Dame Law School.[1]

In 1988, Slager founded Karrington Health, Inc. in Bexley, Ohio.[1]
