Thank you, Pat Williams! - Dick Vermeil, Former Philadelphia Eagles, St. Louis Rams and Kansas City Chiefs head coach
John Wooden has had more influence on my coaching career than any other person. I have always admired the fact that John not only could tell you what he did as a coach, he could tell you why he did it and why it was important to do it that way better than any other coach I have known. He will be remembered for his tremendous coaching accomplishments on the court, but will be remembered even more for his faith, his character and the influence that he had on so many other lives. I highly recommend Pat Williams book. - Tom Osborne, University of Nebraska athletic director
