Dan Issel Rumors

Where are they? A look at the whereabouts of members of the 1993-94 Nuggets: Coach Dan Issel: Working in the oil and gas industry for a Windsor company. Broadcaster for a couple of Nuggets games this season. Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf: Lives in suburban Atlanta. Gives private basketball training sessions. LaPhonso Ellis: College basketball analyst at ESPN. Tom Hammonds: Went into drag racing after 12-year NBA career. Briefly owned a car dealership in South Carolina. Now in the construction business in Florida. Reggie Williams: Resigned in September as coach of Archbishop Carroll High School in Washington, D.C. Rodney Rogers: Paralyzed as a result of a dirt bike accident in 2008. Lives in North Carolina. Brian Williams (Bison Dele): Presumed dead after disappearing during a sailing trip in 2002. Robert Pack: Assistant coach with the Oklahoma City Thunder. Bryant Stith: Assistant coach at Old Dominion University. Dikembe Mutombo: Humanitarian and NBA global ambassador.
Issel now lives in Los Angeles where he is executive director at Bel Air Presbyterian Church. He loves his job and isn’t looking to return to coaching or an NBA front office. About the only basketball job that could attract him would be some part-time work as a TV analyst. For now, he is content to attend UCLA games and practices as a guest of Bruins coach Ben Howland, who attends his church. “I’ve got a wonderful family that loves and supports me,” Issel said. “I got a nice job. I got my health. I’m doing well. I’m trying to move on.”
