Warlick embracing chance to replace Summitt
Tennessee's Holly Warlick insists she doesn't feel much pressure replacing one of the greatest figures in the history of women's basketball.KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- Tennessee's Holly Warlick insists she doesn't feel much pressure replacing one of the greatest figures in the history of women's basketball.
Warlick views becoming the Lady Vols' head coach as stepping in for her mentor after a long apprenticeship.
Still, Pat Summitt's legacy casts a big shadow.
Warlick, 54, played for Summitt and worked on her Lady Vols' staff for 27 seasons. They won eight national championships together. Warlick now takes over for the winningest coach ever in Division I men's or women's college basketball. Her tenure begins Nov. 9 when the Lady Vols travel to Chattanooga.
Summitt, who was diagnosed with early-onset dementia Alzheimer's type last year, stepped down at the end of the 2011-12 season. She remains on staff as head coach emeritus.
