MOSCOW, Idaho—Women’s basketball associate head coach Jordan Green has resigned from the University of Idaho head coach Jon Newlee announced on Friday. Green helped coach the Vandals to back-to-back NCAA Tournament appearances.
Green has spent the last three seasons as a part of Newlee’s staff. He was promoted to associate head coach at the start of the 2013-14 season. Green was heavily involved with recruiting and the scouting of opponents. On the court he helped strengthened the Vandals’ defense, spending a majority of his time working with the post players.
“I want to thank Jordan for all his efforts and contributions to our program,” Newlee stated. “I gave Jordan his first job at the Division I level and have watched his tremendous growth as a coach with considerable pride. We enjoyed great success while he was here and I wish him the best in his future endeavors.”
Formerly an assistant coach at Idaho State, Green worked under Newlee from 2004-08. In his time at Idaho State, Green helped the Bengals to two Big Sky championships, one NCAA tournament appearance, and two appearances in the WNIT.
Green was in charge of guard and wing player development at Idaho State, and also scouted opponents, coordinated travel and assisted with recruiting.
Prior to his time at Idaho State, Green was an assistant coach for the men's basketball program at Seattle University in 2003-04.
Green played basketball collegiately at George Fox University, where he was a three-time team captain and an NAIA All-America Honorable Mention. He earned his bachelor of science in education from George Fox in 2001, and received his master's in athletic administration and physical education from Idaho State in 2005.
