Pat Summitt willed all of her "tangible personal property" to her son Tyler, the Knoxville News Sentinel reported Thursday after obtaining a copy of the famed coach's last will and testament.

USA Today reported that Tyler Summitt, who resigned as women's basketball coach at Louisiana Tech University in April after two seasons, will receive his mother's $14,460-a-month state pension benefit as her non-spouse beneficiary.

The will, dated July 18, 2013, named the coach's brother, Tommy Head, as the executor. It stipulated that all of her "debts, funeral expenses, expenses of my last illness, unpaid charitable pledges, and all taxes, estate, inheritance or otherwise, and any interest or penalties" be paid by trustees of the "Patricia H. Summitt Revocable Living Trust," noted the News Sentinel.

Pat Summit died June 28 at age 64, five years after she was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer's disease, reported CNN. She left the game as the winningest Division I basketball coach – for men or women – with 1,098 victories over 38 seasons at Tennessee. She won eight national titles and reached the NCAA tournament a record 31 consecutive years.

"Even though it's incredibly difficult to come to terms that she is no longer with us, we can all find peace in knowing she no longer carries the heavy burden of this disease," Tyler Summitt said at the time of her death.

The Knoxville News-Sentinel stated that Summitt's will specifically made mention of the coaches' property, including "automobiles, clothing, jewelry, and other articles of personal use or ornament." Her home in Blount County, Tennessee, was put up for sale over the summer.

Pat Summitt had lived at Sherrill Hill Senior Living in Knoxville from January until her death.

Tyler Summitt, 25, stepped down as coach of Louisiana Tech after the married coach admitted to an "inappropriate relationship," wrote USA Today.

"I am profoundly disappointed in myself for engaging in a relationship that has negatively affected the people I love, respect and care about the most," Tyler Summitt said at the time of the resignation.

Tyler Summitt, cofounder of The Pat Summitt Foundation, married his high school girlfriend AnDe Ragsdale on June 1, 2013, and was hired by Louisiana Tech in April 2014 after two seasons as assistant coach at Marquette.
