Green spent four years as an assistant coach at Kansas (1988–1992) under Roy Williams, where he helped the Jayhawks to a 103–30 record and to the 1991 national title game. Additionally, he spent 12 seasons at UNC Asheville, three as an assistant coach (1976–1979) and his last 10 as head coach (1979–1988). Green helped guide Asheville through two major changes in the last three years of his tenure. The Bulldogs made the move up from the NAIA level to the ranks of Division II, and then became a Division I program for Green's final two seasons. His teams posted a combined 150–108 record.
