Geno Auriemma reacts to Pat Summitt's retirement

UConn just released a statement from Geno Auriemma reacting to the retirement of Tennessee coach Pat Summitt.

Pat’s vision for the game of women’s basketball and her relentless drive pushed the game to a new level and made it possible for the rest of us to accomplish what we did," Auriemma said in a statement. "In her new role, I’m sure she will continue to make significant impacts on the University of Tennessee and on the game of women’s basketball as a whole. 

"I am thrilled for Holly (Warlick) as this opportunity is well deserved and Pat will be a huge asset to her moving forward."   
Summitt won a record 1,098 games and eight national titles during her run at Tennessee. She also had more players taken in the WNBA draft than any other program.
