Tennessee Lady Vols head basketball coach, Holly Warlick, is the speaker for the 2014 "Breakfast for Champions" at Orange Grove Center on Friday, April 11, at 7:30 a.m. in the Bucky Williams Auditorium at 615 Derby St. 

The Knoxville native is in her second year as head coach of the Lady Vols, and 29th of coaching overall.  Her roster of game experience includes her career as a player and coach under Pat Summitt.  As a player, she set school records as a three-time All-American point guard and was recognized as “the best player in the South.”  In addition to Tennessee, her coaching repertoire includes Virginia Tech and Nebraska. 

In her first year as head coach at Tennessee, the Lady Vols were 27-8, and she was named the 2013 Spalding Maggie Dixon Division I Rookie Coach of the Year by the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association.  Under her tutelage, the Lady Vols continued to mark their spot each season in the NCAA Tournament.  To date, they have 858 wins and 130 losses, and recently made history again when they earned their 17th SEC Tournament Championship, defeating Kentucky, 71-70.  

Coach Warlick joins a group of sports legends to speak at the annual breakfast, which has included Gene Stallings (Alabama); sportscasters Lindsey Nelson and Bob Kesling (Tennessee), Bill Curry (ESPN), Mike Keith (Tennessee Titans); Vince Dooley (Georgia); Phil Fulmer, Bruce Pearl, Derek Dooley and Butch Jones (Tennessee); and Wes Moore, Rodney Allison, John Shulman and Russ Huesman (UTC).
