In January 2010, Green was named the varsity football coach at Skaneateles High School in Skaneateles, New York.[3]

In December of the same year, Green was named a 2011 winner of the NCAA Silver Anniversary Award, given annually to six former NCAA student-athletes for distinguished career accomplishment on the 25th anniversary of their college graduation.[4]

On November 1, 2011, Green submitted a letter of resignation to the Skaneateles school board after Section III Athletics suspended the team, citing player recriuitment violations by "unnamed Skaneateles coaches." Green told the media the players should not be punished, and he said he hoped his resignation would allow the team to resume play.[5]
