Tennessee head baseball coach Tony Vitello has been reinstated after serving a suspension for a violation of NCAA rules.
Vitello was suspended in April after the NCAA found that he had broken recruiting rules. The NCAA found that Vitello had offered a recruit a summer job with a friend of his that was not approved by the NCAA. As a result, Vitello was suspended for the remainder of the 2021 season.
However, after an appeal, Vitello was reinstated and allowed to return to the team. The NCAA ruled that Vitello had not acted with malicious intent and that the violation was minor.
Vitello is now back with the team and is looking forward to getting back to business. He has already made some changes to the team’s recruiting practices to ensure that similar violations do not occur in the future.
Vitello is a highly respected coach and is well-liked by his players and staff. He is known for his commitment to the program and his dedication to helping his players reach their full potential.
The Tennessee baseball program is looking forward to the rest of the 2021 season with Vitello back at the helm. With him back in charge, the team is sure to have a successful season and make a deep run in the postseason.
