Howard Eisley Named Assistant Coach

Posted on September 04, 2014

WASHINGTON, DC - The Washington Wizards announced today that the team has named Howard Eisley as an assistant on the staff of Head Coach Randy Wittman.  Eisley comes to Washington after spending the last four years on the sidelines with the Los Angeles Clippers.

The 12-year pro ended his career after the 2005-06 campaign. In 786 career NBA games with eight teams, he averaged 6.5 points, 3.5 assists and 1.7 rebounds. The Boston College standout was originally selected in the second round (30th overall) of the 1994 Draft by the Timberwolves.

Eisley spent time with Minnesota, San Antonio and Rockford of the CBA before joining the Jazz in 1995, where he contributed to two Western Conference championships in 1997 and 1998.  Following his stint with the Jazz, he played with Dallas, New York, Phoenix before returning to Utah and eventually playing for the L.A. Clippers and Denver.

Eisley will join assistants Don Newman, Don Zierden, Roy Rogers, Pat Sullivan and David Adkins on the Wizards' bench.
