Tyler Holt enters his third season as the Seminoles’ volunteer coach in 2021, back on the diamond where he was an All-American for Florida State from 2008-2010.
The Gainesville native has been the Noles first base coach the past two years, helping lead Florida State to the College World Series for the 23rd time in school history in his first season. Holt also works with the Seminole outfielders and baserunners.
Holt, along with clubhouse manager Andrew DeGood, also help spearhead the Mike Martin, Jr. Baseball Camps.
A three-year letterwinner for the Seminoles (2008-10), Holt hit .359 with 59 doubles, seven triples, 21 home runs and 117 RBI in his career. He was a freshman All-American in 2008 by the NCBWA and a second-team All-American in both 2009 and 2010.
Holt is the last Seminole to hit .400 in a season, hitting .401 over 237 at-bats in 63 games in 2009.
As a sophomore, Holt won the ABCA/Rawlings Gold Glove Award for his outstanding defense in center field.
Holt was the 10th round draft pick of the Indians in the 2010 draft and made his major league debut on July 6, 2014 for the Indians. A midseason trade in 2015 sent him to the Reds, where he played through the 2016 season.
Holt hit .228 with seven doubles and three home runs while appearing in 156 games in his career.
Holt earned his undergraduate degree in sport management in 2019, nine years after first leaving Florida State.
