Todd Viney (born 30 March 1966) is a former Australian rules footballer who played with Melbourne in the VFL/AFL. After the sacking of Dean Bailey due to their embarrassing 186-point loss to eventual premiers Geelong on 30 July 2011, it was announced that Viney would be Melbourne's caretaker coach for the remainder of 2011.
A Sturt recruit, Viney was mostly a wingman and on-baller for Melbourne. He finished equal fifth in the 1998 Brownlow Medal and twice won Melbourne's Best and fairest. Viney captained the Demons in 1998 and 1999 and earned All Australian selection that year. He announced his retirement before the end of the 1999 season due to nerve and hamstring related injuries. His brother Jay also played with Melbourne.
Viney is named in Melbourne’s Team of the Century, and is a member of the Club’s Hall of Fame.
Former team-mate Alistair Clarkson recruited Viney as an assistant coach at Hawthorn from 2005 to the end of 2008, including their 2008 premiership season. He then moved to the Adelaide Crows from 2009 to 2010. Viney resigned from his role at the conclusion of the 2010 season, and has signed with Melbourne to be in charge of Melbourne's player development program. With Viney's move back to the Demons, Adelaide has conceded that Viney's talented son, Jack, will join the Demons, under the father-son rule.
After Dean Bailey was sacked, the Melbourne Football Club announced that Viney would be caretaker coach for the remainder of 2011. Viney was not retained as senior coach for the 2012 season, due to the appointment of Mark Neeld as Melbourne coach.
