Assistant Trainer Named To Tech Staff

Jake Fox, a graduate assistant athletic trainer at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga for the past two years, has been named assistant athletics trainer at Tennessee Tech University. Fox was announced as an addition to Tech’s staff this week by TTU head athletic trainer Joe Erdeljac. The 33-year-old Fox earned his masters degree in clinical exercise physiology while at Chattanooga. He will be assigned to the men’s basketball and softball teams. Meanwhile, the Putnam County school board has approved a contract with STAR physical therapy to provide athletic trainers at the three high schools in the county. It will cost the school system $75,000 this year to do that.
