How to have an enemy spawn a certain distance behind the player

When a door opens, I want there to be a chance that an enemy will spawn behind the player, and while I can get the enemy to spawn, they usually do so beneath the map. I vaguely know what I need but have no idea how to apply it. Basically, I need to know how to spawn something a certain distance from a moving object, like the player, based on the direction they’re looking.

   public class DoorSpawn : MonoBehaviour {
    	public GameObject self;
    	public GameObject player;
    	public GameObject enemy1;
    	public GameObject enemy2;
    	public GameObject enemy3;
    	Vector3 playerPos;
    	Vector3 playerDirection;
    	Vector3 spawnPos;
    	Quaternion playerRotation;
    	// Use this for initialization
    	void Start () {
    	Vector3 playerPos = player.transform.localPosition;
    	Vector3 playerDirection = player.transform.forward;
    	Quaternion playerRotation = player.transform.rotation;
    	Vector3 spawnPos = playerPos;
    	int randomValue = Random.Range (1,4);
    		if (randomValue == 1) {
    			if (enemy1.activeInHierarchy == true) {
    		if (randomValue == 2) {
    			if (enemy2.activeInHierarchy == true) {
    		if (randomValue == 3) {
    			if (enemy3.activeInHierarchy == true) {
    		if (randomValue == 4) {
    	// Update is called once per frame
    	void Update () {
    	void enemy1Spawn() {
    	 enemy1.transform.position = spawnPos;
    	void enemy2Spawn() {
    	enemy2.transform.position = spawnPos;
    	void enemy3Spawn() {
    	enemy3.transform.position = spawnPos;

The doors are probably in a fixed location therefor when the player opens it he will also be in a predictable location. Why not have an empty gameobject set somewhere behind the player and the door to use as a spawnpoint? A simple LookAt script on the spawnpoint to get the enemy to face the player.It will not be a smooth lookat but the player will be looking away and not see it happen

public Transform target;//player goes here
public GameObject badGuy;

void OnTriggerEnter(Collider other)
		if(other.gameObject.tag == "enemy")
