Sam Douglas is in his fifth year overall as Head Softball Coach at the University of Maryland Eastern Shore.

Douglas was both the Head Soccer Coach and Assistant Softball Coach at UMES from 1991-97. He was promoted to Head Softball Coach in 1998. In that position Douglas was responsible for directing all aspects of the program including the organizing and planning of team practices, recruitment, scheduling, budgeting, and team travel.
