Tim Hudson hired as Auburn’s volunteer pitching coach

AUBURN, Ala. (AP) — Former major league pitcher Tim Hudson is Auburn’s new pitching coach.

Auburn announced Wednesday that Hudson will be a volunteer assistant and pitching coach for the program, where he once starred as a two-way player.

Hudson played 17 years in the major leagues with Oakland, Atlanta and San Francisco before retiring in 2015. He went 222-133 with a 3.48 ERA in his career and was a four-time All-Star.

Well, this answers the question of where he is now….

If you aren’t getting paid have you really been “hired.”

Don't know, but you can be fired. Ask Kramer.

I think this is cool. Had no idea that Hudson was such a great two-way player in college.

In the SEC, "volunteer" coaches make 6 figures. Just not directly from the school.

Hudson was my favorite player right at the tail end of the time when I was getting too old to have "favorite" players. Glad to see he's staying involved
