UAA Record: 233-90, 11 seasons
In 2016, the AVCA National Coach of the Year led UAA to its first appearance in the NCAA Div. II National Title Match, its first West Region title, and the program's first back-to-back Great Northwest Athletic Conference championships, and in 2017 the Seawolves followed by earning their program-record fifth straight NCAA Tournament berth.
A four-time GNAC Coach of the Year (2009, '13, '15, '16) and three-time West Region Coach of the Year ('09, '15, '16), Green has led UAA to NCAA Tournament berths in eight of the last 10 seasons, capturing the program's highest-ever seeds with a No. 2 in 2014 and a No. 1 in 2015 and 2016. (In the 28 years before Green's arrival, the Seawolves made just two NCAAs).
UAA has won at an .802 clip over the last five campaigns, including a 80-18 (.816) mark in league play, capturing GNAC titles in 2015 and 2016.
The 2014-16 campaigns saw Green's Seawolves establish school records for best winning percentage and fewest losses – 21-6, 27-3 & 34-3 – while producing two First Team All-Americans and two GNAC Players of the Year, plus the 2016 West Region player- and freshman-of-the-year honorees.
Under Green's tutelage, the Seawolves have now produced four GNAC Players of the Year (Calli Scott, 2009; Jackie Matthisen, 2011; Katelynn Zanders, 2015; Morgan Hooe, 2016), nine All-Americans, six GNAC Newcomers of the Year, five GNAC Freshmen of the Year, 16 All-West Region performers and 33 All-GNAC Team honorees.
Green's 2010 and 2011 squads recorded identical 18-9 marks and advanced to the NCAAs, while the 2011, 2013 and 2014 teams all came just one win shy of sharing the GNAC title.
After being picked to finish seventh in the 2009 GNAC preseason coaches' poll, UAA wound up winning the league by three full matches. The Nebraska native earned both the GNAC and NCAA Div. II West Region coach-of-the-year awards as the Seawolves tied for the then-best winning percentage (.742) and posted the second-most victories in program history (23). UAA capped its historic 2009 season by winning its first-ever NCAA match, upsetting Hawaii-Hilo in a 5-set thriller.
