Tennessee women’s basketball coach Pat Summitt appeared on the Jim Rome Show Friday after team practice and showed off a raccoon hat sent to her by Farragut Intermediate School.
The gift was inspired by Summitt’s encounter with a raccoon last week on the back deck of her home. She separated her right shoulder by knocking the animal off the deck’s railing.
Meanwhile, Lady Vols assistant coach Nikki Caldwell said that she was contacted Friday by a Memphis official and that they would speak next week. Memphis has a head coaching vacancy.
