Learn the Woottens’ winning ways with enhanced edition of Coaching Basketball Successfully

Morgan Wootten and Joe Wootten’s "Coaching Basketball Successfully, Third Edition" now available through Apple iBookstore and Amazon Kindle store

Legendary UCLA coach John Wooden once said, “People say Morgan Wootten is the best high school basketball coach in the country. I disagree. I know of no finer coach at any level—high school, college, or pro.”

Morgan Wootten has retired from coaching, but his knowledge of the game remains unsurpassed and keen as ever. Coaching Basketball Successfully, Third Edition-Enhanced Edition contains a wealth of Wootten’s timeless wisdom. And, in this third edition, Wootten adds even more value—the coaching experiences, methods, and tactics of his son Joe, a successful high school coach himself.

Loaded with insights, instruction, drills, and Xs and Os, Coaching Basketball Successfully, Third Edition-Enhanced Edition is the best single resource on making the most of your program, team, and players each season.

This enhanced e-book with video is now available for purchase through the Apple iBookstore and Amazon’s Kindle store and is compatible with iOS devices—iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch—using the iBooks or Kindle app. It is also available via Barnes & Noble for use on the NOOK Color or NOOK Tablet.


“It is appropriate to mention Morgan Wootten in the same conversation as John Wooden, Dean Smith, Mike Krzyzewski and Bob Knight as among the greatest coaches of basketball. His impact on all high school sports, all of his former players and coaches, and the entire coaching profession for generations is unmatched. His incredible ability to teach the fundamentals of the game is the gold standard for all coaches at all levels to follow. I know firsthand that his son Joe has continued this way of teaching the game. Joe’s continued development of the Wootten Way has produced championship teams and fundamentally sound college-bound players for over a decade. This book is a must-read for anyone who wants to become a better coach.”
