  Xavier University women's tennis coach Alan Green

     No person in the history of Xavier University of Louisiana has produced more victories at the NAIA National Championships, higher finishes at nationals or higher national rankings than women's tennis coach Alan Green.
     Green's Gold Nuggets have won nine times at the national tournament, including semifinal appearances in 2013 and 2014 and five consecutive first-round victories from 2004-10. The Nuggets are the only team in XU athletics history, which dates to the late 1920s, to reach the NAIA's national semifinals.
     The Nuggets became the first XU team to earn an NAIA No. 1 ranking when they climbed to the top spot in the coaches poll of April 16, 2013. They were No. 1 three times in 2013 and twice in 2014, and they were the No. 1 seed at the 2013 and 2014 NAIA National Championships.
     Those are a few of the highlights of a resumé which includes six Gulf Coast Athletic Conference Tournament championships, 54 consecutive regular-season victories in GCAC dual matches and six straight appearances in the final NAIA top 25.
     The 2014-15 season is Green's 12th as coach. His Gold Nuggets have compiled a record of 172-113 (.604) in dual matches, including 65-1 in the GCAC regular season and 29 victories against NCAA Division I opponents.
     This past season (2013-14) the Nuggets qualified for nationals by upsetting then-top-ranked Georgia Gwinnett 5-3 in the championship match of an NAIA unaffiliated group tournament. It was the third consecutive group championship for the Nuggets and their ninth conference/group championship during Green's tenure.
     The Nuggets appeared in 44 consecutive NAIA Coaches' Top 25 Polls from February 25, 2004, through March 8, 2011. They will enter 2015 with active streaks of 21 consecutive appearances in the top 25 and 16 straight in the top 10.
     Green has coached six ITA NAIA All-Americans, including a school-record four in 2014.
     Green also is Xavier's men's tennis coach. His Gold Rush teams won eight consecutive conference/group championships from 2005-13 and qualified each of the past six years for the NAIA National Championship. The Gold Rush in 2012 became the first XU team in 39 years to reach the national quarterfinals in any sport.
     Of the 34 female and male 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 National Coach of the Year in 2012-13, and he was Region IV Coach of the Year in 2012-13 and 2013-14. He has been GCAC women's and men's Coach of the Year numerous times and was All-Louisiana women's Coach of the Year in 2009 and 2013 and the men's Coach of the Year in 2009, 2011 and 2012.
     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 Nuggets.
