Former Tennessee athletic trainer lands Russia job

Former Tennessee athletic trainer Jenny Moshak has accepted a job for the UMMC Ekaterinburg team in Russia. Moshak retired last year due to what she termed retaliation for a lawsuit she jointly filed against the University of Tennessee for pay discrimination. She had been the Lady Vols athletic trainer for over two decades. A trial is set for next spring.

In a statement yesterday, Moshak said she has started in her new position, where she will remain until next April.

“I will be providing the sports medicine and strength and conditioning services to one of the strongest professional women’s basketball teams in the world — UMMC Ekaterinburg. Candace Parker and Diana Taurasi play on the team. The club is housed in the city of Ekaterinburg, the fourth largest city in Russia, located about 1000 miles east of Moscow. The club plays in the European and Russian Championship Leagues. I will be traveling through Europe and Russia, and growing both professionally and personally,” Moshak said.
