By The Associated Press

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) ' A relaxed and smiling Pat Summitt says "it has been a privilege" to be the Tennessee women's basketball coach four nearly four decades.

The Hall of Fame coach Thursday addressed her decision to step aside during a press conference.

After 38 years at Tennessee, the Hall of Fame coach who won more games than anyone else in NCAA college basketball talked about the move on the court named for her after her 1,000th win.

She will assume a new role as head coach emeritus and report to athletic director Dave Hart.

The 59-year-old coach revealed Aug. 23 that she had been diagnosed with early onset dementia, Alzheimer's type. Summitt's longtime assistant Holly Warlick has been promoted to replace her.
