KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WBIR) -- For the first time in almost four decades, the Lady Vols will have a new head basketball coach.
The UT Athletic Department announced in a press release Wednesday that Pat Summitt has been named Head Coach Emeritus. Her long-time assistant and Associate Head Coach Holly Warlick has been named Head Women's Basketball Coach.
Summitt, the winningest coach in NCAA basketball, announced in August that she had been diagnosed with early onset dementia, Alzheimer's Type. In her 38 seasons time at Tennessee, she amassed an amazing record of 1098 wins and only 208 losses.
