Statement from Chancellor Zeppos regarding the death of Pat Summitt

“We offer our deepest condolences to the University of Tennessee family on the passing of Coach Pat Summitt. Tennessee has lost a remarkable leader,” Vanderbilt University Chancellor Nicholas S. Zeppos said. “There are not enough superlatives to convey her greatness, her accomplishments and the impact she had not only on women’s basketball, but on college athletics nationally. Her legacy lives on in the outstanding student-athletes she taught, on and off the court, to accept nothing but the very best from themselves and from their teammates. She will be deeply missed.”
