Irish's Dantley working as crossing guard

His success at Notre Dame led to a big career in the NBA but now a former member of the Fighting Irish is heading back to school as a crossing guard.

Adrian Dantley played for the Irish in the 70's, went on to become a number one draft pick and spent 15 seasons in the NBA.

Now he is enjoying semi-retirement and its benefits.

"You know in the NBA even though you make a lot of money they don't pay for your health premiums," said Dantley. "I tell my wife I said 'you know what? I don't care how much money that people might think I might have, I'm not gonna spend $17,000 on health insurance.'"

Dantley says he really does it for the kids.

He works just one hour a day, making sure kids at that Maryland school get to class safely.
