Summitt content in new role
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Pat Summitt says she’s “very, very content” in her new role now that she’s had a year to adjust to life after coaching.
The former Tennessee women’s basketball coach showed no obvious signs of her illness during a rare three-minute session with local media at a preview screening of “Pat XO,” a documentary on her life airing July 9 on ESPN.
Summitt stepped down in April 2012, one year after announcing she had early-onset dementia, Alzheimer’s type. Her 1,098 career victories make her the winningest Division I men’s or women’s basketball coach in history.
