Pat Summitt Named Head Coach Emeritus

When I moved here 10 years ago, I had no idea who Pat Summitt was. Hard to imagine right? Well, I learned quickly and became a huge fan. Last August she announced that she had been diagnosed with early onset dementia, Alzheimer’s type, but continued to coach with the blessing of university officials. Today the University of Tennessee announced coach Summitt, the all-time wins leader among NCAA basketball coaches, has been named head coach emeritus. She is the all-time wins leader among college basketball coaches, Summitt finishes her 38-season career at Tennessee with a 1,098-208 record and an .841 winning pct. The Lady Vols won an unparalleled eight national championships under her leadership and played in 13 national championship games. Thank you for everything that you have done and given to us.
