University of Dayton Head Coach Jim Jabir announced the hiring of Shauna Green as an assistant coach of the Flyer women’s basketball staff in June of 2012.
She joins the Flyers after serving five seasons on staff as an assistant coach for the Providence College women's basketball program.
"Shauna brings a wealth of experience to our program as both a head coach and a Big East assistant coach," said Jabir. " I am glad to have her with us. Shauna will help tremendously with recruiting and her technical knowledge. I feel Shauna will continue helping grow the program."
She helped the Friars to their most successful season since 1991 finishing with nineteen wins in 2009-2010. Providence was picked to finish 15th in the Big East Conference preseason poll and took eighth place – in the top half of the 16-team conference – earning a first round bye in the Big East Tournament. That same season the Friars advanced to the Elite Eight in the WNIT on their way to the most postseason wins in school history. In 2011-12 Providence beat two ranked teams in DePaul and West Virginia.
Green came to Providence after serving as head coach of the women's basketball program at Loras College in Dubuque, Iowa for two seasons from 2005-2007. Prior to her stint as the head coach of the Duhawks, Green served as an assistant coach at Loras for three seasons (2002-05).
In her first year as head coach during the 2005-2006 season, Green turned around a team that got off to an 0-6 start and advanced them all the way to the Iowa Conference semifinal game. After the slow start, Loras rallied to win 12 of its last 21 games to finish fourth in the Iowa Conference with a 9-7 mark and a final record of 12-15.
In 2006-07, Green continued to make tremendous strides with the Loras program. The Duhawks finished tied for second place in the Iowa Conference with a 12-4 conference record and a 17-10 overall record. The Duhawks earned the second seed in the conference tournament and a first round bye. For the second straight season Loras hosted an Iowa Conference tournament game, and the Duhawks advanced to the Iowa Conference Championship game for only the second time in school history by defeating regionally ranked Simpson College. Loras' 17 victories in 2006-2007 marked the second most wins in school history, and included a school record eight-game win streak that extended into the conference championship game. Green also coached All-Region and First-Team All-Conference player Natalie Pucci.
As an assistant coach at Loras, the team set a school record by winning 22 games and qualified for the NCAA Division III Tournament for the first time in school history. That same year, the Duhawks won the program's first Iowa Conference title.
A native of Clinton, Iowa, Green enjoyed a stellar playing career at the NCAA Division I level for Canisius College from 1998-2002. Green was a four-time All-Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference selection and was a three-time Team MVP. Green is the Golden Griffin's all-time leading scorer, having finished her career with 2,012 points. She also ranks second all-time at Canisius in rebounding, with a total of 910 caroms. Green's collegiate success also extended into the classroom, as she earned conference and district all-academic honors. She is a 2002 graduate of Canisius with a degree in business marketing. Green went on to earn a master's degree in physical education with an emphasis in athletic administration from Loras.
She is married to Andy Green.
