  Xavier University men's tennis coach Alan Green

     Xavier University of Louisiana has a rich men's tennis heritage that dates to the 1930s. The program continues to excel in the 21st century under the direction of Alan Green.
     The 2014-15 season is Green's 12th as coach of XU's men and women. His highlights with the men include:
     •  Active streaks of six consecutive appearances at the NAIA National Championship, 59 consecutive appearances in the NAIA top 25 coaches poll — that streak started April 4, 2007 — and 29 straight appearances in the top 10.
     •  Eight consecutive conference or NAIA unaffiliated group championships (2005, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013).
     •  The Gold Rush have been in the final NAIA top 25 for nine consecutive seasons and in the top 10 each of the past four seasons.
     •  A 47-match Gulf Coast Athletic Conference regular-season winning streak.
     •  Twenty-eight victories against NCAA Division I opponents.
     This past season (2013-14) the XU men were 13-12, defeated seven NAIA top-25 opponents, reached the NAIA quarterfinals a school-record third consecutive time and ranked eighth in the postseason poll.
     Green's 2012 Gold Rush became the first XU team in any sport in 39 years to reach the national quarterfinals.
     Of the 34 male and female senior student-athletes to play for Green, 29 received degrees from Xavier or are still enrolled. In 2009, men's tennis standout Terry Richardson became the first Xavier athlete to be selected to an Academic All-District first team by the College Sports Information Directors of America.
     Green was the Wilson/ITA NAIA Region IV Coach of the Year in 2011-12 and 2012-13. He has been GCAC women's and men's Coach of the Year numerous times and was All-Louisiana men's Coach of the Year in 2009, 2011 and 2012 and the women's Coach of the Year in 2009 and 2013.
     Green, 40, is a New Orleans native and has two Xavier degrees. He earned his bachelor's degree in 2002 and his master of arts in counseling in May 2008. Green was a tennis standout at XU and the GCAC men's singles champion his senior year, 2002. Soon after his graduation, Xavier hired him as men's and women's tennis coach to replace Charles Mosley.
     Green and his wife, Brandy, are the parents of three daughters. Brandy Romain Green also is an XU graduate, and she played tennis for the Gold Nuggets.
