Rob amassed over 300 appearances for the Devon club at their old County Ground home, as well as captaining and coaching The Barbarians. Following his retirement from playing, Rob started his coaching career as the Director of Rugby at the University of Exeter and combined this with coaching at Exeter Chiefs, firstly with the United team and then as Forwards Coach.
Rob became Head Coach in 2009, and during his first season in charge, he led the team to promotion from the RFU Championship and into the Aviva Premiership for the first time in the club's history. Since then, Rob has not only established the Chiefs as a proven force within English rugby's top tier, but also further afield in Europe where the club are now regarded as a rising force within the modern-day game.
In 2013 Rob was part of the England coaching set-up during their summer tour to Argentina, before successfully guiding The Chiefs to their first piece of major silverware in 2014, when they beat Northampton Saints at Sandy Park to lift the LV= Cup.
He has continued to oversee huge on-field success for the Chiefs, steering them to a first-ever Champions Cup quarter-final in the 2015/16 season and a first Premiership final in 2016, when his side narrowly lost out to Saracens in the end of season showpiece at Twickenham.
A year later, though, Baxter was guiding his side back to the home of English rugby where, following a fantastic 16-game unbeaten run, they overcame Wasps in the 2017 Premiership Final to lift the English title for the first time. The following season, the Chiefs maintained their highly successful playing record, finishing at the top of the table by 8 points ahead of Saracens, although unable to lift the trophy at Twickenham for the second time.
Originally from Burton Upon Trent, Rob studied at Exeter University and now works as a Strength & Conditioning Coach/Sports Scientist for Exeter Chiefs and England Saxons.
Rob’s 7 year involvement with the Exeter Chiefs means he has been part of the overall success of the team as they fought their way to the top of the Premiership table over a number of seasons, culminating in lifting the Premiership Cup at Twickenham in 2017.
