Pat Summitt plans to continue to coach the Lady Vols program despite her dementia diagnosis.
A look back
Pat Summitt coached the Lady Vols to an overall record of 1,098–208 from 1974 to 2012. She stepped down prior to this season due to early onset dementia, Alzheimer's type. Here are a few more of her accomplishments at Tennessee.
All in the family
Summitt, with son Tyler, celebrates the Lady Vols' national championship in 1996 — her fourth national title at Tennessee.
Tyler got used to looking through the rim, as Summitt was able to hoist her son once again after the Lady Vols' second straight national title in 1997.
Three for me
Summitt led Tennessee to its third straight national championship in the 1997-98 season, the sixth title of her career.
One "Hall" of a career
Summitt was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame on Oct. 13, 2000. At the time, she had a record of 728-150.
Pat Summitt and UConn head coach Geno Auriemma were on-court rivals for years, heading two of the premiere women's basketball programs in the country.
In 2007, Summitt returned to the pinnacle of her sport, cutting down the nets for a seventh time in her career, a decade after her sixth title.
Still so sweet
Summitt's eighth national title came in 2008, as Tennessee won back-to-back titles ... again. It was her most recent NCAA tournament title.
The fire still burns
Summitt still boasted her trademark passion for the game late in her career. This picture is from the Lady Vols' 60-59 win over Mississippi, her 999th victory.
Time to celebrate
Two Lady Vols dump confetti on Pat Summitt after she won her 1,000th game on Feb. 5, 2009. Tennessee beat Georgia, 73-43.
SEC it again
Pat Summitt cuts down the net after a win over the Kentucky Wildcats to nab the SEC Tournament title in 2011. She won the SEC Tournament title 15 times as a coach.
What a coach
Summitt won the SEC Coach of the Year honor eight times and was a seven-time NCAA Coach of the Year.
