The John R. Wooden Coach of the Year, commonly known as the Pac-12 Coach of the Year, is an annual college basketball award presented to the top men's basketball coach in the Pac-12 Conference. The winner is selected by conference coaches, who are not allowed to vote for themselves.[1] Former Arizona coach Lute Olson won the award a record seven times.[1] It was first awarded in 1976,[1] when the conference consisted of eight teams and was known as the Pacific-8, before becoming the Pacific-10 after expanding in 1978. Two more teams were added in 2011, when the conference became the Pac-12.[2] The award was known as the Pac-10 Coach of the Year Award when it was renamed in John Wooden's honor following his death in June 2010.[3][4] Wooden coached the UCLA Bruins for 27 years while winning a record 10 national championships, including seven straight.[5] He retired in 1975, the year before the award began.[1]

Dick DiBiaso of Stanford and George Raveling of Washington State were co-winners in the award's inaugural year. Both schools finished in the lower half of the conference that year.[6] DiBiaso is the only coach to have received the award with a losing record.[7] He was a first-year coach for the Cardinal (then nicknamed Cardinals) with only one returning starter, and the team lost a number of significant players to injury. Stanford's record was 9-18 with 11 losses by six points or less.[6] Since the conference expanded to 10 teams in 1978, the winner of the award has typically qualified for the NCAA Tournament. Marv Harshman was 19-10 with Washington in 1981-82 and fellow Huskies coach Bob Bender finished 16-12 in 1995-96 when the schools landed in the National Invitation Tournament (NIT). In 1990-91, Kelvin Sampson guided Washington State to a 16-12 record and did not compete in a postseason tournament.[8]

Lute Olson was named Coach of the Year a record seven times with Arizona
Mike Montgomery was a four-time winner at Stanford
Oregon coach Dana Altman is a three-time honoree.
Sean Miller of Arizona has also won three times.
