Wooden is the all-time greatest

The Sporting News is honoring former UCLA hoops coach John Wooden as the “Greatest Coach of All-Time,” in any sport, during a luncheon today. I will there to talk to with coach Wooden, as well as other dignitaries attending the event.
According to the Sporting News, the “recognition was not determined by our editors, but rather by a voting panel of over 117 former and current college and pro coaches. The panel who participated in the voting is a literal “who’s who” in the coaching community, including the likes of Jim Boeheim, Scotty Bowman, Dale Brown, Larry Brown, Tom Crean, Lou Holtz, Don James, Chuck Knox, Tom Osborne, Dan Reeves, Mike Shanahan, Jim Tressel, Roy Williams, etc.”

    As much as I dislike UCLA, Wooden was surely a good one…

    A much-deserved honor for Coach Wooden, not only for his efforts and results on the court, but also for his impact off it.

    The recognition is nice, but Bruin fans have known this for some time.

    Why is Vince Lombardi so high on the list? I know there’s something to be said for longevity but he only won two SuperBowls.

    Wonder how many votes Lavin and Dorrell received? Certainly two of the all time legends in coaching.

  • Coach Thom

    I believe this award for Coach Wooden is more than deserved. He is an institution, an icon, and a wonderful human being.
