Don Nelson

The legendary NBA coach and former player — best known as the winningest coach in NBA history — added college graduate to his extensive list of honors. In May 2012, at 71-years-old, he earned a bachelor’s degree in physical education from the University of Iowa. Nelson played 14 seasons in the NBA in the 1960s and '70s and coached teams including the New York Knicks and the Dallas Mavericks before retiring in 2010.
