Tennessee Mourns Loss Of Iconic Coach
Knoxville, TN – Legendary Tennessee Lady Vol basketball coach Pat Summitt, mentor and mother-figure to her players; a revered ambassador for her university and state; a trailblazer for women; and a role model for people all over the world passed away Tuesday, June 28th, in Knoxville at the age of 64.
Born Patricia Sue Head on June 14th, 1952 in Clarksville, Tennessee, Summitt arrived at the University of Tennessee for her first job as a 22-year-old physical education teacher and coach in 1974. As it turned out, the move to Knoxville would be the only one she’d make in her career. She leaves a legacy of greatness and grace that will never be forgotten.
