In 1995, as his father's health was failing, he became Senior Vice President and General Manager. One year later, he became Chief Operating Officer of the Baltimore Colts. After his father passed away, he and his stepmother fought for control of the Colts. He eventually won, and, at age 37, became the youngest team owner and CEO in the NFL.

Isray married Meg Coyle in 1980, and the couple has three daughters, Carlie, Casey, and Kalen. Known for often quoting rock music, he also owns Jack Kerouac's original manuscript for "On the Road", for which he paid $2.43 million.
