Women's Basketball vs. Carroll

The Gonzaga women's basketball team defeated Carroll College in an exhibition on Nov. 6, 64-31.

Jordan Green was hired as an assistant women’s basketball coach in April of 2014. Green was the first member of Lisa Fortier’s new staff.

Green brought experience and expertise in both guard and post player development to Gonzaga. He has great knowledge of basketball in the northwest and has recruited the area extensively.

In his first season with the Zags, Green helped guide GU to its fourth Sweet 16 appearance and 11th straight West Coast Conference title. He was instrumental in a Gonzaga defense that allowed only 61.8 points per game, second in the WCC.  In 2016-17 the Zags returned to the NCAA Tournament and swept the WCC Regular-Season and Tournament Championships, only allowing 58.3 points per game, first in the conference.

The native of Cashmere, Wash., closed out his third season on the Idaho coaching staff in 2013-14 and first as the associate head coach. As a member of the Vandals, Green coordinated recruiting and team travel, handled scouting responsibilities and worked with their post players.

The Vandals had a three-year overall record of 54-45 with Green on the bench, including a 32-16 mark in the Western Athletic Conference (WAC). Idaho also earned NCAA Tournament berths in both 2012-13 and 2013-14 after winning the WAC Tournament Championship. The Vandals NCAA Tournament bid in 2012-13 was only the second in school history and first since 1984-85. It also was their first post-season berth since the 1985-86 campaign.

Green coached five All-WAC performers, Alyssa Charleston a three-time All-WAC performer and a Capital One Academic All-American.

Prior to his time at Idaho, Green worked at Idaho State University from 2004-11. During his tenure, Idaho State won two Big Sky Championships and made a splash in the post-season three times; one NCAA Tournament appearance and two appearances in the WNIT.

The versatile coach was in charge of guard and wing player development at Idaho State, and also scouted opponents, coordinated travel and assisted with recruiting.

Green started his coaching career as an assistant coach for the men’s basketball program at Seattle University in 2003-04.

Green played basketball collegiately at George Fox University, where he was a three-time captain and a NAIA All-America Honorable Mention. On the all-time statistical charts at George Fox, he ranked third in steals (253), seventh in points (1,468), and 10th in assists (373).

He earned his bachelor of science in education from George Fox in 2001, and received his master’s in athletic administration and physical education from Idaho State in 2005.

Green is married to Jessica Green, and they have a son Jaden and daughter Josephine.
