Connecticut head coach Geno Auriemma on Pat Summitt’s stepping down after 38 years as the head of Tennessee:

Pat’s vision for the game of women’s basketball and her relentless drive pushed the game to a new level and made it possible for the rest of us to accomplish what we did. In her new role, I’m sure she will continue to make significant impacts to the University of Tennessee and to the game of women’s basketball as a whole.

I am thrilled for Holly as this opportunity is well deserved and Pat will be a huge asset to her moving forward.
