Reaching the Summitt

May 24th 2006

Did you hear about the latest millionaire coach?  I know, it seems like every day there’s a new millionaire coach, but this one is very special.
 

Her name is Pat Summitt and she’s the first female women’s basketball coach to be rewarded with a million dollar per year contract.
 

You can read about it here at espn.com.
 

I first came to know Pat when we worked together at Tennessee.  Many know Pat around the country as the all-time wins leader among basketball coaches, men or women, but there are many who don’t know about her countless efforts off the court.
 

Pat routinely gives back to the community – both the basketball community as well as the Knoxville community – and she’s always been supportive of all that’s required of her time off the court to grow the Tennessee women’s basketball program as well as women’s basketball in general.
 

It was certainly my pleasure to work with Pat and I’m happy for her and her family (R.B. and Tyler) that she has been rewarded with a new six-year contract that makes Pat the first women’s basketball coach to earn one million dollars per year.  She’s well worth every penny.
