Tennessee cites job performance in firing of coach

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee officials are citing unsatisfactory job performance as their reason for firing Lady Vols associate strength coach Heather Mason, who sued the university last fall.

Mason's personnel file, obtained through a public records request, includes letters from Tennessee women's basketball coach Holly Warlick and women's soccer coach Brian Pensky recommending that a change be made. The information was first reported by the Knoxville News-Sentinel.

Mason, associate director of sports medicine for women's basketball Jenny Moshak and former associate strength and conditioning coach Collin Schlosser filed a suit against the university last October that alleged they performed similar tasks as employees who held similar positions for men's athletic teams, but that they received less pay because of their gender or because of their association with women's teams.
