Shawn Green (UNH '96) enters his second year as Academic Support/Compliance Assistant at the University of New Hampshire. He joined the Wildcats in the fall of 2010 after serving as the head coach for the men's and women's cross country/ track teams for nine years at Quinnipiac University, and most recently was the men's cross country/track & field coach at Southern Connecticut State University for a year. He splits his time in the academic support and compliance departments.
Green made an immediate impact in his only season with the Owls. He led the squad to Northeast-10 Indoor and Outdoor Track and Field Championships, as well as a fourth-place finish at the New England Indoor Championships. The Owls were the top Division II finisher at New England's indoors in 2010.
Prior to his year at SCSU, Green had served as head men's and women's cross country/track and field coach at Quinnipiac from July, 2000 to July, 2009. During that span, he transformed the cross country programs into a juggernaut, as evidenced by four consecutive Northeast Conference women's cross country titles (2005-08) and four titles in five years on the men's side (2004, 2006-08).
A three-time Northeast Conference Women's Cross Country Coach of the Year, Green also guided the women's cross country squad to the 2007 New England Championship.
In his 10 years at Quinnipiac, Green coached 32 individual Northeast Conference champions and nine NEC champion relay teams. He also coached the Bobcats' first female Division I All-American in any sport, Katie Gwyther.
The academic accomplishments of Green's squads were equally as impressive. His squads were recognized with Academic All-America Team honors by the United States Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association on 34 occasions (out of a possible 36) over the past nine years. The 2004 men's track and field and 2007 women's track and field teams posted the second-highest team grade point average of any Division I program in the nation.
As a student-athlete, he competed for both the UNH and Michigan State University. Green was a captain at UNH and led the Wildcats to a pair of North Atlantic Conference titles. He completed his track and field eligibility at Michigan State.
