SILVER SPRING, Md. (AP) — Adrian Dantley left the NBA in 1991, but now he has a new job: crossing guard.

Radio station WTOP reports Dantley, who spent most of his career with the Utah Jazz and the Detroit Pistons, started working as a crossing guard in September 2012. He works an hour a day at Eastern Middle School and New Hampshire Estates Elementary School in Silver Spring, Md.

Ths 6’5″ Dantley grew up in the area and says he took the job for the health care benefits and to have something to do.

The Montgomery County civil service records show he gets paid $14,685.50 a year. Dantley says he doesn’t need the money.
