Pat Summitt Steps Down As Head Coach of the Tennessee Volunteers After 38 Years With the Program

The next time the Tennessee Volunteers women's basketball team takes the floor, something will be very different. After 38 years and 1098 wins with the program, head coach Pat Summitt has announced that she will be stepping down, presumably because of the early-onset dementia that she was diagnosed with last year. She'll be succeeded by associate head coach Holly Warlick. Goodbye to a true basketball legend.
