Cumberland director of athletics Ron Pavan announced the hiring of former CU football player and graduate assistant Sam Greene as the department’s compliance coordinator.
Greene will begin his new assignment on Sept. 9.
The Maryville native was a four-year starter at all three line spots for the Bulldogs, playing in 35 career contests with 31 starts. He was a two-time NAIA Scholar-Athlete and earned Mid-South Conference Scholar-Athlete accolades three times. Cumberland posted a 26-17 record during his four seasons, including 8-3 in 2010 and 7-3 in 2011.
Greene served as a graduate assistant in the athletic department during the 2012-13 academic year, helping with class attendance, organization of athletic department activities including Leadership Training in August for all student-athletes, as well as game management and marketing efforts.
"I am thrilled at the opportunity to once again become part of the Cumberland family,” Greene said. I am eager to assist in helping the Bulldogs continue their storied tradition of competing and excelling within each sport and in the classroom."
He lettered three years for coach Scott Meadows at William Blount High School, earning All-Region honors as a junior and senior for the Governors.
Greene earned his bachelor’s in General Business from Cumberland in May 2012 and received his master’s in Business Administration from Cumberland during summer 2013.
