Green to head golf program

FOR RELEASE
2007-08-03
Huntington University graduate Mark Green enters his fifth year as head coach of the Forester golf program.

Green led his Foresters to an MCC conference title in 2009. The win gave the Foresters an automatic bid to the NAIA Men's Golf National Championship. It marked the first time in school history that HU has qualified as a team for the event. Green has twice been voted MCC Coach of the Year by his peers.

As a student-athlete for the Foresters, Green was a four-year letter winner in both soccer and track and field. While successful in both sports, he left his mark in track and field. Upon his graduation, Green held both the Mid-Central Conference and Huntington College records in the pole vault. His 15’0” vault still stands in the University's record books.

Since graduating from HU with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Physical Education in 1994, Green gained experience in the coaching ranks as an assistant in several Forester sports programs including soccer, track as well as three years as an assistant in the golf program. Currently Green serves as an assistant for the Forester basketball program. Green also serves as the Parks Superintendent in Columbia City where he, his wife Joanne and their son Tyler reside.
