According to Coach Green’s Wikipedia page, he’s 6 ft 8 in but he’s so down to earth, you may not feel as though you’re looking up to him. Students line up outside of his office to get his advice and insight. There’s much to appreciate about Coach Green, including his desire to return to college and complete his bachelors degree after his professional career brought him back to the United States after working in Europe.
