Coach John Wooden

John Wooden, College Basketball’s Most Successful Coach has passed away.

John Wooden, a staid Midwesterner who migrated to U.C.L.A. and became college basketball’s most successful coach, earning the nickname the Wizard of Westwood and an enduring place in sports history, died Friday. He was 99.

Wooden created a sports dynasty against which all others are compared, and usually pale. His teams at U.C.L.A. won 10 national championships in a 12-season stretch from 1964 to 1975. From 1971 to 1974, U.C.L.A. won 88 consecutive games, still the N.C.A.A. record.

Coach Wooden was more than a coach, he was a mentor, a faithful husband, a loving father, and a teacher. What stands out to me most of all about the character of the man himself is the Wooden Pyramid of Success
