First-year Tennessee women's basketball coach Holly Warlick enjoyed a homecoming of sorts Wednesday night in Jacksonville.

Warlick, who succeeded the iconic Pat Summitt after serving as an assistant under her for 27 years, was part of Tennessee's Big Orange Caravan that enjoyed a reception with Volunteers fans at San Jose Country Club.

Warlick spent summers in Jacksonville growing up staying with her grandmother. She was welcomed to town Wednesday by several family members, including her aunt and uncle, Vicki and Steve Long of Jacksonville.
