Big Orange Caravan kicks off tour in Maryville

MARYVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- For the third straight year, Tennessee has a new coach making the rounds with annual Big Orange Caravan.

Newly promoted women's basketball coach Holly Warlick joined football coach Derek Dooley and men's basketball coach Cuonzo Martin as well as athletic director Dave Hart for this year's first caravan appearance Monday night.

The caravan has seven stops this month, including Memphis, Atlanta and Jacksonville, Fla.

In past years, the caravan visited more cities with the coaches rotating at each stop. Hart and all three coaches are scheduled to be at each location this year.

Though Warlick says she hadn't been prepped on what to expect on the tour, Pat Summitt's longtime assistant assured the crowd she's ready to handle her new role with the Lady Volunteers.
