Longtime assistant coach Holly Warlick – a former Lady Vols’ All-American and 27-year assistant at UT – will take over for 59-year-old Hall of Famer Pat Summitt, who will become head coach emeritus. “We will work as hard as we possibly can with the goal of hanging more banners in Thompson-Boling Arena,” Warlick said.

Tennessee athletic director Dave Hart said he watched Holly Warlick grow this season under what he called “unique circumstances” and that she is deserving of newly retired Pat Summitt’s head job. “Her mentor will be available for insight and advice, but this is Holly’s team now,” Hart said.
