Pat Summitt is definitely one of the greatest basketball coaches of all time. During her 38 year long year career, as a coach of Tennessee Lady Volunteers Basketball team, the team won 1,098 games and 32 SEC championships and eight national championships. In 2012, she was rightly awarded The Presidential Medal of Freedom.
Pat Summit will go down in history as one of the greatest basketball coaches of all time. This will be backed by her numerous achievements in basketball. As a coach she has managed to win eight NCCA championship and becoming the first coach to win to achieve 1000 wins and has the most wins of any female basket ball coach.
Yes, I believe that Pat Summitt is one of the greatest basketball coaches of all time because Summitt has won eight NCAA championships and has the most wins of any female basketball coach in NCAA history. Summitt has also won an Olympic gold medal as a head coach and was named the Naismith Basketball Coach of Century in 2000.
When one looks at the greatest coaches in NBA and NCAA history, we would be remiss to not consider one fact as being perhaps the most important of all, which is that the true measure of leadership is not only measured in victories, but also in the conduct of leadership.
