Pat Summitt, Legendary Tennessee Lady Vols Coach, Dies At 64

KNOXVILLE – Legendary Lady Vols Head Coach Emeritus Pat Summitt died early Tuesday morning from complications of Alzheimers disease. Summitt, an inspirational leader and mentor to hundreds of young women athletes, is credited with greatly advancing women's sports and female athletic visibility.
She was the fourth of five children born to Richard and Hazel Head on June 14, 1952, in Clarksville, Tenn. Her tireless work ethic and her love of the game of basketball were forged while growing up on the family farm.
She'll be remembered as the all-time winningest Division 1 basketball coach in NCAA history, racking up more than 1,000 victories and eight national titles during her 38 years of coaching at the University of Tennessee. Her teams made an unprecedented 31 consecutive appearances in the NCAA Tournament.
