More About Coach Adrian

I have coached at the collegiate level as an assistant coach for Towson State University in Towson, MD. I also spent eight years as an assistant coach for the Denver Nuggets.

Dantley attended DeMatha Catholic High School ,where he played under coach Morgan Wootten.

Dantley was a forward at Notre Dame from 1973–76. He was a consensus first-team All-American in 1974–75 and 1975–76. He ranks second on the Notre Dame career scoring list with 2,223 points and holds the school record for free throws made (615) and free throws attempted (769).

He played an important role in one of the biggest games in college basketball history, Notre Dame's 1974 upset to end UCLA's record 88-game winning streak.

He was also the leading scorer on the 1976 US Olympic team that captured the gold medal in Montreal.

He was the NBA Rookie of the Year Award in 1977. In Utah, Dantley was a prolific scorer, twice leading the league in scoring (in 1981and 1984

Dantley enjoyed outstanding success at every level of basketball, including high school, college, Olympics, and the NBA. On April 7, 2008, he was elected to the Basketball Hall of Fame.

Dantley later worked for the Denver Nuggets as an assistant coach for eight seasons.

I concentrate on fundamentals, nutrition and the importance of weight training. The sessions usually involve offensive moves, including spot dribbling and one on one offensive techniques.
