Life and early career

Piet Buter was born in Haarlem, Netherlands, and in his younger years played amateur soccer for VV Schoten. An injury cut short his playing career, and he turned to coaching instead.

Buter began his coaching career with SV Cronje, and subsequently had spells at VV Noordwijk and RCH. He spent a period under contract with the Dutch Football Association.

Professional career

From 1989 to 1991, Buter was coach of Dutch first division club FC Wageningen, and in successive seasons took the club to 10th and 15th positions in the league. In his second season with Wageningen he shared his duties with Willem van Hanegem (who went on to coach FC Utrecht), as his assistant coach.

In 1991 Buter moved to the Haarlem club FC Emmen. But he only managed an eighteenth-place finish, and was replaced by René Notten. Buter then moved on to FC Eindhoven for one season.

In 1993, he took a break from his coaching career, but returned in 2006 to take on the role of Technical Director at FC Utrecht, where he stayed until 2009.

In 2009, Buter left Utrecht and took the job of assistant coach with the Iran national football team.
