| No Comments | No TrackBacks
It probably comes as no surprise to many fans that Marquette assistant women's basketball coach Tyler Summitt has been of great media interest throughout his first season of coaching full-time at the collegiate level.

As one might imagine, those back in his hometown of Knoxville, Tenn. have a special curiosity about Summitt's work here in Milwaukee.

Television news outlets in Knoxville have delivered for those viewers, sending reporters and photographers to the Al McGuire Center to chronicle the path of Summitt, who traveled more than 600 miles from home to begin building his career.

Over the weekend, WATE (ABC) was on hand for Saturday's win over DePaul - Jim Wogan had a two-part story, including one with Tyler mic'd up in game:
