Coaching legend John Wooden out of Hospital

Former UCLA and South Bend Central coaching great John Wooden has been released from the hospital after a bout with pneumonia.

UCLA, the school Wooden coached to 10 national titles, says the 98-year-old is resting at home.

Wooden was admitted to a Los Angeles-area hospital Feb. 13.

Nan Muehlhausen, Wooden's daughter, says her father is happy to be out of the hospital but still needs plenty of rest.

His family requested that well-wishers not call or visit.

Wooden spent time in the hospital a year ago after breaking his left wrist and collarbone in a fall at his suburban condo.

He retired 34 years ago.

Wooden will be inducted into the NAIA Hall of Fame next Tuesday along with Bethel hoops coach, Mike Lightfoot.
