SwishAppealMultiple sources close to the situation have informed Swish Appeal the person Tyler Summitt had an inappropriate relationship with is a player and that she is pregnant. We have decided to not release the player’s name.

Earlier Thursday, Summitt resigned from his head coaching position at LA Tech after he admitted to an inappropriate relationship.

Summitt released this statement following his resignation:

“It is with great regret that I resign from my position as head coach of the women’s basketball program at Louisiana Tech University. 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. My hope, plans and prayers are to repair those relationships. I am appreciative of the opportunity I was given to coach at Louisiana Tech. I am heartbroken that my time has ended in Ruston, but because of my respect for the institution, it is best that I resign. I am hopeful the media and the public will respect the privacy of my family and me as we deal with this difficult situation I have caused.”

Summitt is the son of legendary head coach, Pat Summitt. He has been the head coach at Louisiana Tech for the past two seasons. While at LA Tech, he has compiled an overall record of 30-31, 19-17 in Conference USA play.

Well here’s a learning experience for all the women’s hoops programs out there. Hiring a 23 year old to be your head coach? Probbbbbably not the best idea. (And I’m still not convinced this dude was 23 when he was hired, 25 right now:)

I mean I’m 28 and it would be real hard for me to not try and hook up with some hot, young, athletic college girl I spent all my time with. For a 23 year old? Literally impossible. Like not even remotely a possibility. It’s just hardwired into a 23 year old’s DNA. Basic biology.

I will say it’s a little disappointing that the son of one of the great gameplanners and strategists in college hoops history got the girl pregnant. Guess sometimes the apple does fall far from the tree.
