CONGRATULATIONS: Tennessee Vols Coach and wife welcome a new baby…

Tyler Summitt, son of Lady Vols coach Pat Summitt, welcomed his first daughter to the world on Tuesday, Feb. 7, according to a tweet from his account.

Patricia Lakelyn Summitt now shares the same first name as her legendary grandmother.

During Summit’s time at the University of Tennessee, she won eight NCAA championships and never had a single losing season.
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — On this day, 15 years ago, legendary Lady Vols coach Pat Summitt reached 1,000 wins. She was the first D1 basketball coach to ever accomplish this.

The milestone was reached after the Lady Vols beat the Georgia Bulldogs at Thompson-Boling Arena on Feb. 5, 2009.

During Summit’s time at the University of Tennessee, she won eight NCAA championships and never had a single losing season.

Summitt coached 21 all-American’s, 39 all-SEC players and 12 Olympians. She also coached current head coach Kelly Harper.

For years, she was the most winning coach in college basketball history.

Beyond her mastery on the court, Summitt is remembered for her desire to make a difference and her efforts to fight Alzheimer’s disease after her early-onset diagnosis in August 2011.

In 2012, former President Barack Obama awarded Summitt the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation’s highest civilian honor. Fellow Vol Peyton Manning presented her with the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at the 2012 ESPY Awards.

On Nov. 22, 2013, UT unveiled a bronze statue to honor Pat Summitt across the street from Thompson-Boling Arena.
