For those Lady Vols fans who might be worried about Tennessee’s plan to combine athletic departments, don’t bother because Pat Summitt isn’t bothered.
“I don’t really have any reservations,” Tennessee’s women’s basketball coach said. “It may be the best way to go.”
Summitt said that UT chancellor Jimmy Cheek asked her to visit with him before the announcement and he shared the plan to name Lady Vols athletic director Joan Cronan the interim AD.
“He had a plan and wanted to make sure that I understood what he was doing with Joan and the role she’s in,” Summitt said.
Summitt also doesn’t forsee any threat to the Lady Vols brand, which includes a different logo and color scheme.
“Our logo is our logo,” Summitt said. “Their logo is their logo.”
