John Wooden “Wizard of Westwood” RIP 1910-2010


"The Great" John Wooden

John Wooden was voted as the coach of the century for all sports. He was the most successful college basketball coach in NCAA history. He won 10 championships and was the face of UCLA basketball from 1948 to 1975. Since he retired, numerous books have been written documenting his coaching style and philosophy. He is the “gold standard” of coaches in terms of accomplishments and reputation.

Wooden was a teacher in every sense of the word. He is one of the most influential figures in all elite sports and he has made a tremendous impact in many of his player’s lives outside of basketball. Wooden believed that teacher’s haven’t taught until the student has learned. He covers many different aspects of leadership in this video below, but always comes back to the importance of being a teacher, mentor, and role model. John Wooden recently passed away on Friday June 4, 2010. He will always be remembered for his influence, service, and accomplishments on the basketball court and off.
