Some interesting highlights:

  • A few notes:
  • Summitt has a 100 percent graduation rate for all Lady Vols who have completed their eligibility at UT.
  • Summitt is the first woman’s basketball coach to earn a $1 million salary [but only as of 2006 and despite huge success].
  • She donated $600,000 last August to be split between UT-Martin and UT-Knoxville to support the women’s basketball programs.
  • Coached gold medal winning U.S. team at the 1984 Olympics (with Kay Yow).
  • Has won 8 national NCAA women’s basketball titles, 27 SEC tournament and regular season titles, 27 consecutive appearances in the NCAA tournamment Sweet 16.
  • Tennessee players include 12 Olympians, 19 Kodak All-Americans and 71 All-SEC players.
  • Summitt earned the John R. Wooden Legends of Coaching lifetime achievement award in 2008.

Her son's unique perspective on women's sports, by virtue of his unique mom, is really interesting (althought admittedly has a little cheesy touched-by-an-angel feeling to it that's probablly not quite reality)
