Eric Vetetoe accepted the head baseball coach position at Lebanon High School.

Vetetoe spent the last two years coaching Trousdale County, putting together a 26-33-1 record. He was an assistant coach for two years prior.

Vetetoe helped lead the Jackets to their first state tournament appearance in 2005 as a shortstop and pitcher and the only senior on the squad.

“I would like to thank Mr. Satterfield for the opportunity to come back to Trousdale County and thanks to the administration and coaches that have helped me along the way,” Vetetoe told The Hartsville Vidette. “This is a great opportunity for me and my family and a chance to focus on one sport that will enable me to spend more time with my family.”

In college, Vetetoe was a backup third baseman behind NAIA national player of the year Matt Greener on Cumberland's national championship team during his senior year in 2010.

Lebanon went 11-19 last season, losing 12 of its last 15 games. The Blue Devils haven't had a winning season since they went 23-13 in 2009.
