Happy Birthday Coach Wooden
By: UCLA Athletics

Oct. 14, 2001

John Robert Wooden, the best teacher in the history of college basketball, celebrates his 91st birthday today, Sunday, October 14.

The UCLA Athletic Department sends its best wishes to coach Wooden, who attended Saturday's football game and Friday night's UCLA Hall of Fame induction ceremony.

Coach Wooden guided the UCLA program to unmatched success for 27 years, from 1948-49 through 1974-75. In his final 12 years, UCLA won 10 NCAA championships, including seven straight from 1967 through 1973.

In coach Wooden's final game -- March 31, 1975 -- UCLA defeated Kentucky to win its 10 title.
