Pat Summitt, legendary Vols coach, dies at 64

-

On Sunday, it was reported that renowned Tennessee women’s basketball coach Pat Summitt was growing quite ill, and her family was “preparing for the worst.”

On Tuesday, Summitt passed away at the age of 64. She had battled with early onset dementia, which caused her to make the decision to retire in 2012.

ESPN confirmed her death on Twitter early Tuesday morning:

The entire sports world is grieving the loss of such a legendary figure, as Summitt is easily the best women’s basketball coach of all time – perhaps even one of the greatest coaches of all-time across the board.

In her coaching career – all spent with the Vols- Summitt and her team claimed eight national titles, 18 Final Fours, and 1,098 wins. She coached at the University for nearly four decades, starting in 1974, and retiring in 2012. Summitt still remains the winningest coach in NCAA basketball history – in both the men’s and women’s sectors of the programs.

We wish Summitt’s family and friends only the best during this sad time.
