Whatever happened to Shawn Bradley? It seems like he’s just disappeared.
You have a point, Robert. Given Bradley’s quiet demeanor, his picture is far more likely to appear on the back of a milk cartoon than on the front of a box of Wheaties. According to the Salt Lake Tribune, this former Dallas Maverick is currently working as a vice principal and counselor at Utah’s West Ridge Academy, a non-profit school that specializes in helping boys and girls with a variety of challenges. "Shawn has a great presence - due to his size - and has immediate credibility with the kids," says Ken Allen, the school’s executive director. "He is a great example of someone who has worked hard and been very successful.” Although “The Mormon Mantis” doesn’t have a teaching degree, his 12 years in the NBA have given him the perfect foundation for dealing with delinquents with ADHD, ADD and anger management issues.
