Scott Drew was born October 23, 1970 in Kansas City, Missouri and is the head coach of Baylor University's men's basketball team. For one year, he was the head coach at Valparaiso University in Valparaiso, Indiana where his brother Bryce Drew played and his father, Homer Drew is the current head coach.
On August 22, 2003, Drew took the head coaching position of the men's team at Baylor after the resignation of Dave Bliss due to the scandal. Drew took over the team in August (unusually late for a coaching change) and most of Baylor's top players from the previous year had chosen to transfer.
Drew took over a program left in a shambles as a result of the scandal. Besides losing most of its top players, the program was put on probation until 2010, and had paid scholarships and paid recruiting visits reduced until 2007. Post season play was also cancelled for the 2003-2004 season, and only conference games were permitted for the 2005-2006 season. With these handicaps, Drew led the Bears to an 8-21 record in the 2003-2004 season, 9-19 in the 2004-2005 season, and 4-13 in the conference-only 2005-2006 season.
In the 2007–08 season, Drew turned around his Bears to finish with a 21–9 regular season record and 9-7 Big 12 record, and rank 4th in the Big 12. The 21 wins and 9 conference wins were Baylor's best since joining the Big 12 in 1996. It was enough to make the NCAA Tournament for only the fifth time in school history and the first time since 1988. After the season, Drew signed a 10 year contract extension to stay the head coach of the Bears.
Prior to the 2008–09 season, a Rivals.com writer called Drew the Big 12 "coach on the rise", due to Drew's success in recruiting talent to Baylor. The Big 12 coaches picked Drew's squad to finish 4th in the conference.
In 2010, after finishing tied for second in the Big 12 with a squad picked to finish tenth in the preseason poll, Scott Drew was elected the Austin American Statesman's Coach of the Year award.
