Head Coach Carl Salyer
Carl Salyer is in his eighth season as Maryland's water polo coach.
Salyer, the second head coach in program history, has gradually improved the program since he took over in 2005.
The Terps matched their best-ever postseason finish last season, claiming third in the 2011 CWPA Eastern Championship. They were also 17th in the final CWPA national poll, the highest-ever finish for Maryland.
Two years before Salyer had the Terps in the mix for an NCAA Tournament berth for the first time.
Maryland finished third at the 2009 CWPA Eastern Championship and No. 18 in the CWPA national poll, the second-best showing in school history.
In 2008, the Terps posted a school-record 22 wins and a fourth-place finish in the CWPA Eastern Championship. Maryland ended the year receiving votes in the final national poll and narrowly missed out on an NCAA bid.
Maryland has also been impressive outside the pool during Salyer’s tenure.
Eleven Terps were named to 2009 CWPA Scholar-Athlete Team and eight players earned Association of Collegiate Water Polo Coaches (ACWPC) All-Academic honors that season.
In 2010, seven Terps earned spots on the ACWPC All-Academic Team and seven were on the CWPA Scholar-Athlete Team.
