Family of Pat Summitt, legendary Vols coach, ‘preparing for the worst’

Ahead of the 2012-13 college basketball season, legendary Tennessee Lady Vols head coach Pat Summitt stepped down from her long-standing post after being diagnosed with early onset dementia.

A little over four years later, it seems as though the sports world could be losing another legend.

On Sunday morning, it was reported that Summitt was “struggling” and that her family is “preparing for the worst.” Her condition has not improved over the last few years, which is a big reason why she was forced off the court after nearly four decades.

“I don’t think anybody knows whether she will last a day, a month, or a year,” one family source told Vols Extra.

Former ESPN and current Good Morning America anchorwoman Robin Roberts, who battled and beat cancer at one point during her career, took to Twitter to send her prayers to Summitt.

During her 38-year career with Tennessee, Pat Summitt won nearly 1,100 games and led her team to 14 Final Four appearances and eight national championships.
