David Macias enters his first season as Vanderbilt’s volunteer assistant coach.

Macias rejoins the Commodores’ staff after previously serving as Tim Corbin’s strength coach in 2014 when the Dores won the national championship, and volunteer assistant in 2015 when Vanderbilt returned to the College World Series finals.

Prior to rejoining Corbin’s staff, Macias was with the Seattle Mariners organization as a minor league manager. He took over as skipper of the Single-A Clinton LumberKings midway through the 2017 Midwest League season. He had been serving as the Mariners Player and Staff Systems Coordinator before taking over managerial duties. In 2016, he was the team’s Coordinator of International Player Programs.

The former Commodore outfielder played four seasons in professional baseball (2008-11), all in the Chicago Cubs’ organization. He was drafted by Chicago in the 19th round of the 2008 MLB Draft.

Macias played at Vanderbilt from 2005-08. During his senior season, he was named first team All-SEC and second team All-South Region/All-District 3, and garnered the Jeff Peeples Most Valuable Teammate award. He took home SEC Player of the Week honors in week eight of the season and his 96 hits during the campaign are tied for fifth-most on Vanderbilt’s single-season list. Macias is also among Vanderbilt’s all-time leaders in at-bats (9th, 784) and hits (10th, 255).

Macias graduated from Vanderbilt with a bachelor’s degree in Sociology.

Macias resides in Nashville with his wife Pam.
