Michael Greene

2010: Greene joined the MU coaching staff following his playing career as a student assistant and is in charge of video coordination and exchange.

2009: Greene was the recipient of the Cura Personalis Award, voted on by all Marquette student-athletes, recognizing him as the member of the 2009-10 senior class who best exemplified the Jesuit spirit, including "excellence in academics, athletics and leadership through service to others" during his tenure at MU. On the soccer field, Greene was one of two players (Amilcar Herrera) to see action in all 18 of the team's matches and ranked second on the squad with 16 starts. His lone assist of 2009 was on Chris Madsen's go-ahead goal at DePaul in the 83rd minute. Greene finished with 22 shots on the season and played a total of 1,344 minutes. He was named "Most Improved" at the team's annual end-of-the-year banquet. Green was also named to the Marquette Invitational All-Tournament Team following his play against Buffalo and nationally ranked UC Irvine.

2008: Greene started in all 14 games he appeared in. With seven of his 14 shots on goal, Greene tallied a .500 shot on goal percentage and averaged one shot per game in 1162 minutes.

2007:
Michael Greene built on a solid first-year in the program and only improved as a sophomore. Greene started eight games at forward for the Golden Eagles, and saw action in all but one game. Despite a season which saw somewhat of an offensive drought with a team average of 0.62 goals per game and 12 goals in 18 games, Greene provided two assists in a win against Cincinnati (Sept. 30) and a 1-1 draw versus UW-Milwaukee (Oct. 31). In the Cincinnati game, Greene sent a beautiful through ball from the top of the box where Nick Kay finished it off just inside the far post for the game's first goal. A forward with a quick and dangerous shot, he took 12 total shots and recorded a .250 shots on goal percentage.

2006: Greene was a late arrival at Marquette as he was ineligible at season's beginning due to some questions about his schooling in Liberia. Once squared away, Greene quickly joined the team and became an immediate force in the lineup. He arrived on campus after the start of the semester and missed all of the pre-season workouts. He jumped into the lineup just days after his first practice, making his collegiate debut against DePaul (Sept. 8). He made his first collegiate start one match later against USF (Sept. 10). He provided a boost of speed, making him a difficult mark for opposing defenders. Greene had a busy freshman year at Marquette, also competing on the track and field team. Greene, as the lone Liberian on MU's campus, had the opportunity to escort Liberian president Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf in her visit to the school.

Prior to Marquette: Greene was an All-Conference selection and league MVP. He was a two-time All-State and All-Conference selection and was named his league's Rookie of the Year. He was also a goal scorer in the state section semifinal game, leading his team to a sectional runner-up spot. He also plays club for Wings Soccer Club. Prior to coming to the United States, Greene spent most of his life in Liberia, where his love for soccer began. He has also lived in Ghana.

Personal: Greene was born December 18, 1985, and is the son of George Greene and Catherine Hill. His major is Social Welfare and Justice.
