KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Pat Summitt will continue in her role as the Tennessee head coach emeritus on Lady Vols coach Holly Warlick's staff next season.


In a university release Wednesday announcing the move, Tennessee athletic director Dave Hart said "her continued example of leadership and courage sends an everlasting message to our student-athletes, coaches and staff."


In her role as head coach emeritus this season, Summitt attended most practices and watched virtually every home game from the stands. She also mentored players and coaches and assisted in on-campus recruiting.


Summitt stepped down as the Tennessee head coach in April 2012, one year after announcing she had early-onset dementia, Alzheimer's type. She won eight national titles and 1,098 games in 38 seasons, making her the winningest Division I men's or women's basketball coach.
