Louisiana Tech tabs Tyler Summit as head coach

  Tyler Summitt, 23, spent the past two years as an assistant at Marquette.

RUSTON, La. -- Louisiana Tech has hired Tyler Summitt, the son of former Tennessee coach Pat Summitt, to take over the Lady Techsters.

The university has scheduled the formal introduction for the 23-year-old Summitt on Wednesday.

Summitt will become only the sixth coach of Louisiana Tech's storied women's basketball program.

He will succeed Teresa Weatherspoon, who was fired after this season, her fifth at the helm.

Summitt, who turns 24 in September, has not yet been a head coach in his fledgling career. He's spent the past two seasons as an assistant coach at Marquette.

He does have pedigree on his side, though. His mother coached Tennessee for 38 seasons, led the Lady Vols to eight national titles and is in the Basketball Hall of Fame.
