Notre Dame head women's basketball coach Muffet McGraw celebrated Pat Summitt's amazing accomplishments on the court with her Tennessee Lady Vols ... and off court as well.
McGraw reflected on Summitt's distinguished career after the announcement this week Summitt is stepping down as the Lady Vols head coach and assuming the moniker of "head coach emeritus."
Holly Warlick, Lady Vols assistant head coach, will take over head coaching duties at the University of Tennessee.
The official end of Summitt's 38-year tenure, not surprisingly as the winningest coach in NCAA history, comes eight months after she announced she had been diagnosed with early onset dementia, Alzheimer's type.
McGraw on Summitt
"While I'm certainly sad to hear that Pat is stepping down as the head coach at the University of Tennessee, I think today is really a time to celebrate Pat's amazing accomplishments and everything she has done to help bring the sport of women's basketball to where it is today.
