Jerry Green retires from IU basketball program

Jerry Green, who served as Director of Basketball Operations for Kelvin Sampson at both Oklahoma and Indiana, has left the program. A veteran of several high profile jobs — he was head coach at Tennessee and Oregon and served four years as an assistant under Roy Williams at Kansas — Green had taken four years off from coaching before joining Sampson’s staff prior to the 2005-2006 season. He and his wife Nancy then followed Sampson to Indiana.

A search for a replacement is currently being conducted.


  1. When Rod Wilmont bowled him over on the sidelines earlier this season, I have the feeling that took at least a year or two from Jerry Green’s life expectancy.

    Thanks for your time at IU and hope we can get someone of equal experience.

  2. Chris, any chance you can get a copy of the plans for the new basketball practice facility and put them on the blog?

  3. Jerry Green is a friend of mine and I’m looking for a way to contact him. Do you have an e-mail address or cell number? Thanks.
