Tennessee extends Summitt's contract
Summitt, who has won six national championships and ranks third among men's and women's college basketball coaches with 837 wins, also received a raise of $74,500 that increases her salary to at least $824,500, according to a contract signed in November and obtained by The Associated Press on Monday.
