The entire The Los Angeles Athletic Club family extends its condolences to the Wooden family. For over 35 years, we had the honor to know Coach Wooden as a loving family man and friend. To our nation, Coach has been the patriarch for all that is good in sports and a model for student-athletes, coaches and those who strive for excellence. His accomplishments as a college coach and player and his lessons on life are legendary. Today we mourn the loss of Coach Wooden and his dear friend and co-founder of the John R. Wooden Award, Richard “Duke” Llewellyn. Our prayers are with Coach Wooden’s family.
