A native of Rochester, New York, Panaggio spent the last four seasons as an assistant coach for the NBA's Portland Trail Blazers, and before joining the Blazers' staff was an assistant coach at Indiana University in 1999-2000.

Prior to his two assistant coaching stints, Panaggio was head coach of the Quad City Thunder for nine seasons. He owned a career record of 313-191 with the Thunder and won a CBA championship in both 1994 and 1998. All nine of his teams advanced to the CBA playoffs.

In 1999, Panaggio led Quad City to the National Conference crown and the league's best regular-season record, en route to earning his third CBA Coach-of-the-Year award. Entering the 2000 season, he had more career victories than any other active coach and left the CBA ranking second on the all-time win list behind his father, Mauro, who coached Quad City prior to Dan. Panaggio ranks third all-time in games coached (504), third in playoff victories (71) and fifth in regular-season winning percentage.

Panaggio spent three seasons as an assistant coach with Quad City before taking over the head coaching duties and prior to that was the head coach at Monroe Community College in Rochester, N.Y., where he posted a 70-15 record. Panaggio, 50, is a graduate of SUNY-Brockport and he and his wife, Ellen, are the parents of five children.
