Pat Summitt Steps Down

Pat Summitt, arguably the greatest Women’s College Basketball coach in history, has stepped down as the head coach of the Tennessee Lady Vols. Summitt will remain associated with the program as “head coach emeritus,” but will pass along the official job to her long tenured assistant Holly Warlick.

Last year, the 59 year old Summitt announced that she had been diagnosed with onset dementia, the Alzheimer’s type. During her 27 year tenure as the head coach, Pat led the Lady Vols to 8 national titles, and never failed to reach the NCAA tournament. She finishes her career with an astonishing 1,098-207 record, the most wins in NCAA women’s basketball history.

In a statement released earlier today Summitt said, “I’ve loved being the head coach at Tennessee for 38 years, but I recognize that the time has come to move into the future and to step into a new role.” She also stated that she stands behind Holly Warlick and plans to continue to be a spokesperson in the fight against Alzheimer’s.
