Feb. 27, 2009

Legendary UCLA basketball coach John Wooden, 98, is in the final stages of recovery from a case of pneumonia at a local hospital, where he has been since February 13. He is resting comfortably and is expected to make a full recovery.

"My father is doing well," said Nan Muehlhausen, Coach Wooden's daughter. "His lungs are clear and he has been eating well. We expect him to be released soon."

Coach Wooden's family is asking that people not call or come to the hospital so Coach Wooden can rest. They are also requesting that media and others not call family members for updates and that fans refrain from sending mail to Coach Wooden at this time.
