Interviews with Coach John Wooden to air on FamilyLife Today

John Wooden, who passed away on June 4 at the age of 99, has been called a true basketball legend. Wooden led the UCLA Bruins to 10 NCAA national championships and was named by ESPN as the greatest coach of the twentieth century.

Wooden's children, Nancy Muehlausen and Jim Wooden, issued the following statement shortly after their father died:

"He has been, and always will be, the guiding light for our family. The love, guidance and support he has given us will never be forgotten. ... Our peace of mind at this time is knowing that he has gone to be with our mother, whom he has continued to love and cherish."

Tomorrow and Tuesday (June 7-8), FamilyLife Today (which is headquartered in Little Rock, Ark.) will air the following interviews with Wooden:
