Todd Raleigh Biography
Tennessee Volunteers head coach Todd Raleigh was born in Swanton, VT on March 27, 1969. After playing baseball in high school, Raleigh attended the University of Western Carolina where he played the catcher position from 1988-1991. Following his graduation, he was hired as an assistant at the Universities of Vermont (1992), Western Carolina (1993-94), Belmont Abbey (1994), James Madison College (1994-98), and East Carolina (1999) and gained significant bench experience.
Following his decade as an assistant coach at five different schools, Raleigh was rehired by his alma mater in 2000 as the men’s baseball head coach. Taking over a program that had fallen on hard times, Raleigh’s first squad had a disappointing 15-38 record. However, the team improved markedly over the next three seasons and posted a 43-21 record in 2003. Between 2004 and 2007, Raleigh posted two more 40 plus win seasons and built Western Carolina baseball into a respected national mid-major program.

Due to his success over eight seasons at his alma mater, Raleigh was hired by the University of Tennessee. His first two seasons, 27-29 and 26-29 respectively, have been mildly disappointing, but Raleigh has stepped up recruiting since taking over the program and hopes his moves will pay dividends in the near future.
