ADAMS: I thought the Tennessee Lady Vols basketball team's hiring of Kim Caldwell was a joke. Why it might just work

“I am humbled and honored to accept the role as head coach of this historic program at the University of Tennessee,” Caldwell said in a school release. “I can’t help but think about accepting the Pat Summitt Trophy three seasons ago and am moved by the great responsibility and opportunity to now lead and build on the incredible Lady Vol tradition she has established . I'm so excited to get to work and can't wait to see what we can all achieve together.
