Legendary Coach Pat Summitt Passes; Joins John Wooden in the Ultimate Hall of Fame; RIP Coach and Give a Cheer for the Volunteers

We at CYInterview would like to extend our condolences to the family and friends of legendary women’s college basketball coach Pat Summitt, who coached 38 years at the University of Tennessee. As the winningest coach in NCAA division 1 basketball history – men’s or women’s – with 1098 wins, there are many great words to describe her. A few of the words that come to mind are: humble, grateful, teacher, motivator, leader and champion. There is a lesson there.

Coach Summitt won 8 national titles, had a 39-0 undefeated team in 1998 and was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame in 2000. In 1984, she led the United States’s Women’s Basketball Team to a gold medal at the Olympics.

After being diagnosed in 2011 with early onset dementia, the basketball coach kept moving forward and founded the Pat Summitt Foundation, to find a cure for Alzheimer’s. In 2012, President Obama honored her with the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation’s highest civilian award.

Few people have contributed as much to women’s sports as Pat Summitt.
