Jim Scholler joined the Memphis Grizzlies as the Assistant Athletic Trainer and Assistant Strength and Conditioning Coordinator in 2008. In 2016, he was named Head Athletic Trainer for the team.

Before joining the Grizzlies, Scholler spent nine of the previous 10 years as an athletic trainer for the University of North Florida, including the Final Four as the head athletic trainer, where he oversaw administration and supervision of all athletic training services provided to UNF student-athletes.

Scholler provided care for baseball and men’s soccer as a UNF graduate assistant from 1998-2001 before covering men’s basketball, volleyball, men’s and women’s tennis, cheerleading and dance teams as assistant athletic trainer from 2001-2003.

Scholler was the athletic trainer for the Greek National Baseball team which competed in the European Baseball Championships in 2003 and 2005. He also spent one season (2003-04) as the assistant athletic trainer at Notre Dame, where he oversaw the health care of the men’s and women’s cross country and men’s lacrosse teams.

The Grand Haven, Mich. native is a certified member of the National Athletic Trainers’ Association, a licensed athletic trainer in the State of Tennessee, and a National Academy of Sports Medicine performance enhancement specialist (PES) and corrective exercise specialist (CES).

Scholler developed an interest in athletic training as a multiple sport athlete in high school. Having worked with an athletic trainer after suffering injuries during basketball season, he developed an understanding of the profession and its place in sports. Once in college he decided that athletic training would be the perfect profession for him to remain involved in sports.

Scholler earned his Bachelor’s Degree in movement science from the University of Michigan in 1998 and his Master’s degree in healthcare administration from UNF in 2001.

Scholler and his wife, Jennifer, have one son, Garrett.
