RIP Coach Wooden

John Wooden dies at 99; coach won 10 national basketball titles at UCLA - latimes.com

Quote:
John Wooden, the UCLA basketball coach who became an icon of American sports while guiding the Bruins to an unprecedented 10 national championships in the 1960s and '70s and remained in the spotlight during retirement with his "Pyramid of Success" motivational program, has died. He was 99.


My family has a signed copy of The Pyramid of Success that my dad read to me when I was young. Though I wasn't alive when Wooden was coaching, his words on integrity and loyalty resonated with me as a kid and I am proud to call myself a Bruin and be associated with his legacy.

I am watching an episode of Criminal Minds and the quote they used at the beginning was from him! Weird, right?
