John Wooden Pyramid Of Success Printable – John Wooden has passed away, leaving many mourning his death. By most descriptions he was always humble, and always there for his students without any hesitation. Everywhere that you look around the university that he once taught at, UCLA, there are reminders of the type of man that he was. He was born in 1910, and by all accounts lived a full life, and was one of the greatest American basketball coaches of our era. He is also a member as the Basketball Hall of Fame. He was able to enter the hall of fame both as a player and as a coach. He was nominated for each entrance into the hall of fame only twelve years apart from each other, in 1961 and then again in 1973.


He was born in the small town of Hall, Indiana. He began his coaching career as a high school coach for the Dayton High School of Kentucky. His first year at the school was the only time in his entire career that he ever had a losing record as a coach, when the team went 6-11. He then moved on to Indiana State University. He had a successful run there as well, but his real success was found at UCLA. His complete record for his career was 664-162, with a record of 620-147 in his time at UCLA. He was able to lead the team to ten national championships, and is regarded as the greatest college basketball coach of all time.

He has been honored in many ways since his death, and continues to garner a large amount of attention in various ceremonies in his honor. The loss of John Wooden was met with extreme sadness from many individuals at UCLA, some of whom have said that they believe that he made the school what it was.
