Former UT director of sports medicine gets boost from advocacy group in lawsuit

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Former Tennessee director of sports medicine Jenny Moshak and two ex-Lady Vols strength coaches are receiving support from a women's legal advocacy group in their lawsuit against the university.

The American Association of University Women announced Tuesday it would assist Moshak and ex-Lady Vols strength coaches Heather Mason and Collin Schlosser through its legal advocacy fund. The association describes itself as a nonprofit organization that uses its legal advocacy fund to provide financial and organizational backing in gender discrimination cases.

Moshak, Mason and Schlosser say they performed similar tasks as employees who held similar positions for men's teams, but that they received less compensation either because of their gender or due to their association with women's teams.

The case is set to go to trial June 23.
