Pat Summitt finalizes divorce from husband of 27 years

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Tennessee coach Pat Summitt has finalized her divorce from R.B. Summitt after 27 years of marriage.

Summitt's lawyer, Bernie Bernstein, says the final paperwork was submitted in Blount County Circuit Court on Friday. Court clerk officials said Monday that the paperwork was still being processed.

Pat Summitt's petition, filed in August after the couple had been separated for several months, claimed irreconcilable differences. The pair have one child, 17-year-old Tyler.

Pat Summitt is the winningest basketball coach in NCAA history and just won her eighth national title. R.B. Summitt is the president of Sevier County Bank.

Bernstein said at the time the divorce paperwork was filed that the biggest issue likely would be division of property, though details of their divorce settlement were unavailable Monday.
