Pat Summitt still head coach emeritus
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- Pat Summitt will remain the Tennessee women's basketball head coach emeritus next season and can continue holding the position as long as she wants it.
That's according to a new contract signed in May and obtained Thursday night through a public records request. It states that Summitt will have the title head coach emeritus "in perpetuity, or until she chooses to relinquish it."
Summitt will make $75,000 under terms of the contract, which runs through April 30. She had been paid $85,000 last year.
Summitt has served as head coach emeritus since ending her 38-season tenure as the Lady Vols' coach in April 2012. That came one year after announcing she had early-onset dementia, Alzheimer's type.
