Todt began playing professionally with TSV Havelse. In 1991, he followed manager Volker Finke to SC Freiburg, in the German second division, and the two would eventually gain legendary status at the Black Forest outfit. In his second season, he scored a career-best 11 goals in 42 games, being instrumental as the club promoted to the Bundesliga for the first time ever.
Freiburg managed to maintain its top flight status in the following three seasons - finishing third in 1995 - with Todt scoring 14 league goals combined. In the 1996 summer, he signed for SV Werder Bremen, as a replacement for ageing Dieter Eilts (31) and Mirko Votava (40), managing to appear regularly for the club during his three-year spell, which ended with German Cup conquest, with the player missing in the penalty shootout against FC Bayern Munich (1–1 after 120 minutes) in the final.
Todt subsequently joined VfB Stuttgart, rarely managing to appear due to injuries and loss of form. He retired in 2003 at the age of 33, with German top division totals of 208 games and 21 goals (plus 101/18 in the second level).
After retiring, Todt worked as a journalist for Der Spiegel, joining Hamburger SV as youth team coordinator shortly after. He left HSV in June 2009, and took up a similar role with VfL Wolfsburg seven months later.
On 1 January 2017, he was named as the sporting director of Hamburger SV.
