Posted on Yahoo today. Sounds like Howland didn't actually meet Coach Wooden, personally, until after the presser announcing Howland's hiring. Perhaps this was well known by BNers. But I just got a big AHA moment. Heck, even little 'ol me, spoke to Coach Wooden, more than once, back in the day, at Pauley. I certainly didn't know that the "Keeper of The Program" was a stranger to John Wooden, especially with UCLA being his "dream job", and all. No wonder Howland was nothing like Coach. Howland didn't even know John Wooden. Oh, well. Coach Hoosier likely never met John Wooden either. Go Bruins.
