KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Pat Summitt says she's "very, very content" in her new role now that she's had a year to adjust to life after coaching.


The former Tennessee women's basketball coach showed no obvious signs of her illness Wednesday during a rare three-minute session with local media at a preview screening of "Pat XO," a documentary on her life airing July 9 on ESPN.


Summitt stepped down in April 2012, one year after announcing she had early-onset dementia, Alzheimer's type. Summitt, the winningest Division I men's or women's basketball coach in history, attended most of the Lady Vols' practices and watched nearly every home game from the stands this past season as head coach emeritus. She has signed on for a second year in that role.
