After months of what she described as “erratic behavior” she went to the Mayo Clinic in May and has since received the diagnosis. She plans on coaching until she no longer can.
“I feel better just knowing what I’m dealing with,” she said. “And as far as I’m concerned it’s not going to keep me from living my life, not going to keep me from coaching. There’s not going to be any pity party and I’ll make sure of that.”
She was 22 when she first coached the Lady Vols in 1975, and since then Coach Summitt has recorded more than 1,000 victories, eight national titles and enough memories for multiple lifetimes.
Best of luck Coach – Connecticut is pulling for you.
