Todd Helton is listed on Tennessee web site as Director of Player Development.

Is he going to take an active part or is that just a title?


He said.


“After spending three years at Tennessee and 17 years in the Major Leagues with the Colorado Rockies, I really wanted to give back to this program any way that I can," Helton said.

I saw him in the dugout regularly last year. IIRC, his position prevents him from coaching/instructing because of the other coaches on staff, but he can advise players about playing professionally whether it is entering the draft early or not (again, this is my recollection).

I think Todd Helton's involvement could only mean good things for UT baseball. The only caveat is he dosen't step on or overshadow the current coaching staff which I doubt he will. He is definitely a VFL and a good dude. I met him a few times back when he was in school and he was a nice guy when nobody was watching.

Go Vols!

I love Todd too but i believe his association is similar to Jimmy Buffet and Margaritaville. Jimmy ain’t cooking and Todd ain’t coaching. Wonderful to have a great player associated with the program but that is about the extent of things.
