 LOS ANGELES (AP) -UCLA is asking fans to leave former coach John Wooden alone during home basketball games.
The 97-year-old coach is a popular draw at his seat behind the Bruins' bench, with people forming a line to get his autograph any time he shows up.
The no autographs request was announced Wednesday by UCLA at the request of Wooden's family.
``It all wears on him,'' UCLA spokesman Marc Dellins said. ``He just wants to be able to come and enjoy the games.''
Wooden gets around using a cane and is usually accompanied by his daughter. A lone security guard is on hand to keep the crowd orderly.
Coach Ben Howland said he suggested a year or two ago that fans be asked to leave Wooden in peace.
``It's long overdue,'' Howland said. ``It's not an autograph signing session. He'd be there all day just doing that. He never says no to anybody about anything.''
