Dan Monson recruited Dan Dickau to Gonzaga as a transfer, setting up Dickau’s rise to becoming a college All-American. Monson joined Monday’s episode of The Iso podcast with Dan Dickau to rehash his Gonzaga days, his calling into coaching and his connection with his father, legendary coach Don Monson. He also got emotional rehashing the first commit he landed: Gonzaga legend and Bellarmine Prep (Tacoma) product Casey Calvary.
Monson has been the head men’s basketball coach at Long Beach State since 2007, but he’s perhaps best known for helping grow Gonzaga into an NCAA Tournament darling during his 11 years in Spokane.
The Iso with Dan Dickau is a podcast presented by SBLive Sports and the Bleav Podcast Network, which publishes weekly on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Dickau, a former Gonzaga All-American, NBA vet-turned basketball analyst interviews experts all corners of the sports world from coaches, front office executives to athletes about untold stories, memories and experiences.
