Rachel Miller named director of operations for UT baseball

Rachel Miller has been named director of baseball operations for the Tennessee baseball team.

Miller worked in UT’s sales and marketing office for the past year, assisting with the marketing efforts for UT’s baseball, women’s basketball and volleyball teams.

“Rachel has been a part of our athletic department for a year and I immediately noticed through her involvement with the baseball program her attention to detail and work ethic,” UT coach Dave Serrano said in a school release. “With Gregg (Wallis) moving on to be an assistant coach at Grand Canyon University, this opening was the perfect opportunity to make my staff stronger with organizational skills and the knowledge of campus that Rachel possesses. I think it will be a perfect fit to have her as a member of our staff.”

Miller has also served as an events coordinator at Ohio State University, where she managed camps, clinics and gameday events for the football, softball, wrestling and field hockey teams.

Miller earned her bachelor’s degree in sport and leisure studies from Ohio State University in 2012 and is currently pursuing a master’s degree in sport management at UT.

UT did not release Miller’s salary. Wallis was earning $38,000.

Don't understand how someone who has never played baseball can be hired as director of baseball operations.... It's a different world I understand, but heck...still doesn't SOUND right, lol!


Valid point.

But unless CDS turns it around this year and at least earns a trip to Hoover it matters not who's got what title...things will change again.
