     Green is one of the most successful coaches in XU history. He was chosen Louisiana Coach of the Year in men's tennis in 2009, 2011 and 2012 and in women's tennis in 2009 and 2013. He has led the Gold Rush and Gold Nuggets to regular appearances in the NAIA top 25 coaches polls, numerous conference and group championships and multiple appearances at the NAIA National Championships. The 2012-13 season was the best ever for the Rush and Nuggets — the men ranked fifth and the women third in the NAIA postseason polls. The Gold Nuggets in 2013 became the first Xavier team in any sport to reach the NAIA's national semifinals or be ranked No. 1 in an NAIA coaches poll.
     Green was chosen the Wilson/ITA NAIA Women's National Coach of the Year in 2013. He will enter his 11th season at Xavier in 2013-14.
