Head Coach Scott Buete comes to Salisbury as the third coach in men's soccer program history after serving as the assistant coach at the University of Maryland for seven seasons where he helped lead the Terrapins to the 2018 National Championship. During his time at Maryland, Buete helped engineer one of the best teams in the Big Ten. The Terps won three Big Ten Tournament Championships, two Big Ten Regular Season Championships and appeared in six NCAA Tournaments. Buete also coached four Terrapins who were named All-Americans, 13 MLS SuperDraft selections, four MLS homegrown signees and two U.S. Men's National Team players.
As a player, Buete was a standout defender for the Terrapins during his playing career. A three-year captain from 2001-03, he was a two-time National Soccer Coaches Association of America (now United Soccer Coaches) All-American with first-team honors in 2003. He led Maryland to two College Cup appearances, an ACC Tournament Championship in 2002 and an ACC Regular Season Championship in 2003. After graduating from Maryland, Buete was drafted ninth overall by the Chicago Fire in the 2004 MLS SuperDraft. He also played for the Atlanta Silverbacks, Charleston Battery and Tampa Bay Rowdies of the United Soccer League and the Baltimore Blast of the Major Indoor Soccer League.
