Jenny Moshak is retiring over issues related to a lawsuit against the University of Tennessee that she is a plaintiff in:

Jenny Moshak is leaving the athletic trainer’s room at the University of Tennessee, but not without having a final say.

The associate director of sports medicine at UT, who’s a co-plaintiff in a lawsuit against UT, issued a statement Friday through her lawyer, Keith D. Stewart, saying that she took an early retirement over issues related to the suit.

“Due to the overall atmosphere since I raised issues of equality at the University of Tennessee and given the university’s unwillingness to address the issues of discrimination and retaliation, I cannot continue my association with the university’s athletic department,” Moshak said in the statement.

Moshak, who worked at UT for 24 years, said in the statement that her retirement began on Thursday. She said that she will continue pursuing a career in sports medicine and “continue the fight for equality and justice within athletics.”
