Scott Drew (b. October 23, 1970 in Kansas City, Missouri) 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.

Drew graduated from Butler University in 1993 with a bachelor's degree in liberal arts. Although he never played high school basketball at the varsity level, Drew spent two years as a student assistant for men's basketball team.

Afterwards, Drew assumed an assistant coaching position with the Valparaiso University Crusaders men's team under his father Homer Drew. He spent nine years in this position, during which he earned a master's degree from Valpo and a reputation as one of the best recruiters in the nation. Once the elder Drew retired, he became the team's head coach for one year. In that year, Valparaiso won the regular season conference championship, but lost to IUPUI in the Mid-Continent Conference tournament, thus losing the bid to the NCAA tournament. However, the team proceeded to earn an NIT bid. When Drew went to Baylor, his father came out of retirement to coach Valpo. All three Drews, Homer, Bryce and Scott Drew are also nominated to become one of Valparaiso University's 150 Most Influential Persons in the University's history.
