It’s Over

Pat Summitt

Pat Summitt, the winningest coach in Division I college history, retired Wednesday as head coach of the University of Tennessee women’s program, according to the school. Summitt, an Ashland City, TN, native, announced last August that she had been diagnosed with early onset dementia. The school said she will now take the title of “head coach emeritus” after coaching the program for 38 seasons and amassing 1,098 victories. Summitt will continue to work with the women’s basketball program and remain involved in on-campus recruiting in her new role, said the school. Holly Warlick, an assistant on the Tennessee staff for 27 seasons, has been named Summitt’s successor and will assume head coaching duties.
