Dialogue: Former Lady Vols AD Joan Cronan


Pat Summitt may have been the most visible face of the Lady Vols, but for 28 years, Joan Cronan was the engine that moved the women's athletic program at the University of Tennessee.  A tireless ambassador for women's athletics, Cronan built the Lady Vols program into one of the most recognizable and respected in the country.   

Now retired, Cronan has written a book "Sport is Life with the Volume Turned Up".  On this installment of Dialogue, Joan Cronan joins host Matt Shafer Powell to reflect on her time as Women's Athletic Director at UT and discuss the ways in which her career in athletics has taught her lessons about business and life.
