LMU hired ASC and Dr. Kurt Patberg to assist them in their search for a new athletic director following the retirement announcement of Roger Vannoy. Green is arriving from Shorter College in Rome, GA where he has been serving as the Interim Athletic Director having served for the past several years as the Associate Athletic Director. Green who began his career with Shorter as the Sports Information Director in 2009 is taking part as one of only a few participants in the NCAA’s Pathway Leadership Program designed to elevate a select few who are in senior level administration positions to athletic directors.

Green received his Master’s Degree in Sport Management from Virginia Commonwealth University while working as the Sports Information Director at Hampden-Sydney College. He received a Bachelor Degree in Mathematical Economics from Hampden-Sydney College where he played point guard for the basketball team and was a two-year captain for the Tigers. During his senior year, Green helped lead his team to its tenth Old Dominion Athletic Conference championship and the team’s 13th Division III tournament appearance.

"By using their [ASC's] knowledge to get to our short list of candidates that fit what we sought in an athletic director, we easily spent half the amount of time that is normally required in a search like this.   Additionally, they enhanced the pool of by bringing several qualified candidates to the finalist list.  Showing that they know talent, two of the individuals that they sought out, and applied to our position, were hired by and are current NCAA Division II AD’s.  Our search finished with securing a quality hire.  If our institution ever needed to conduct a search for an athletic director, we would without question use the services of ASC."
