Ryan Bowen is retired from the NBA, but he could be making a return as an assistant coach.
Bowen, who is entering his second season as the video coordinator and administrative assistant for the Iowa men’s basketball team, is in Denver this week interviewing for an assistant coaching position with the Denver Nuggets.
Former NBA player Darvin Ham also is interviewing with the Nuggets, according to DenverPost.com.
“We brought them in to see them work,” Denver coach George Karl said of Bowen and Ham.
Bowen played forward at Iowa from 1994-98 under coach Tom Davis before embarking on a nine-year career in the NBA. The Fort Madison native played his first five seasons in the NBA for the Nuggets, starting 53 games during that time.
Bowen retired from the NBA in 2009 after playing in just one game for the Oklahoma City Thunder.
He returned to his college alma mater after Fran McCaffery was hired as the Iowa coach in March 2010.
