Assistant Coach

Scott Vetere is in his sixth season as an assistant coach with the Wolverines. A native of Pennsburg, Pa., Vetere formerly coached in the Junior National program at the Michigan Academy of Gymnastics in Westland, Mich.

In his first season, Vetere helped coach Michigan to sixth place at the 2005 NCAA Championships and third place at the Big Ten Championships, the team's highest finish since 2002.

In 2009, Vetere assisted Michigan to an 11-5 regular-season record, a Big 10 Co-Championship, and a runner-up finish at the NCAA Championship - marking the fifth time in Vetere's six year tenure that the team has reached the Super Six.

While he was on the team (1999-2003), Vetere proved to be one of U-M's most accomplished gymnasts. In 1999, he garnered Big Ten Freshman of the Year honors and helped the Wolverines win that year's Big Ten and NCAA team titles. He amassed a Michigan-record 10 NCAA All-America citations, in addition to winning five Big Ten individual titles over his career. He was also a two-time team captain, the 2000 Michigan Male Athlete of the Year and a member of the U.S. Senior National Team.

Vetere's international competitive experience includes the 2003 World University Games in South Korea and the 1999 Chunichi Cup in Japan. Other international assignments and training camps have taken him to Belarus, Spain, and France.

Scott graduated from Michigan in 2003 with a degree in organizational behavior and is recently completed his masters in accounting. He and his wife, Amanda, also a Michigan graduate, live in Ann Arbor with their daughter, Isabella.
