Todd Ross Whitting (born June 13, 1972) is an American college baseball coach and former player who currently serves as the head coach of the Houston Cougars baseball team. Prior to his current position, Whitting served as associate head coach for the TCU Horned Frogs under Jim Schlossnagle, where the team made their first College World Series appearance.[2]

Whitting spent all but one of the first 12 years of his adult life at Houston as a player or coach. From 1991 to 1995 (except for 1993, which was spent at Navarro Junior College), he played second base under Bragg Walton and Rayner Noble. He graduated from Houston with a degree in kinesiology.[3] He served as an assistant at Houston under Noble until 2003, when he left for TCU.
