They Shoot Coaches, Don't They?

Blackwell North Amer
They Shoot Coaches, Don't They? traces UCLA's history and the parade of coaches that have tried to recapture the glory days and wrestled with Wooden's legacy. Mark Heisler has talked to the key players and coaches who helped establish UCLA's dynasty years ago and kept the dream alive till the 1994-95 season, when they finally threw the monkey off their back with a championship win after twenty years. His in-depth interviews with John Wooden, Denny Crum, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and Bill Walton provide insight into what it meant to play for the school that started it all. He details the loss of innocence in this college sport over the past thirty years and illustrates the lengths to which many schools will go, including UCLA with its own shady booster in flashy Sam Gilbert, to make it to the big dance.
