In her two years at Newman, Green transformed the Jets into a contender at both the conference and national levels. Newman posted a 42-14 record under Green, won back-to-back Heartland Conference regular season titles, and made the program's first-ever appearance in the NCAA Div. II National tournament.
Green led Newman to a 23-6 mark in 2011-12 and a berth in the Division II South Central Regional Tournament. The Jets won the Heartland Conference Tournament and Green earned HLC Coach of the Year honors. She guided Satoria Bell to a Conference and Regional Player of the Year pick, as well as first-team All-America honors. Three Jets earned All-Heartland Conference honors.
Prior to Newman, Green was the head coach at Labette Community
College where she posted a 81-21 record in
her three seasons and led the Cardinals to a third place finish at
the NJCAA Tournament. Under Green, the Cardinals were
nationally-ranked for two seasons, and finished first in the
Jayhawk Conference twice. Green also produced 17 NCAA Div. 1 and 2
signees, five All-Region VI Selections, five Junior College
Academic All-Americans, two Jayhawk Conference Players of the Year,
nine All-Conference selections, two Jayhawk Conference MVP's, and
four Region VI All-Tournament Team selections. Green's
Cardinals posted an overall GPA of 3.0, and boasted a 100 percent

To honor her efforts, Green was named the 2008-09 Jayhawk East Coach of the Year in 2008 and 2009, and was named NJCAA District F Coach of the Year in 2010.
