TSL Sports Talk- Auburn University Athletic Director Allen Greene

The first African American AD in the university’s history shares his story with us.

Our guest this week is Allen Greene, the new Athletic Director at Auburn University and the first African American AD in the University’s history.

Greene, 40, was the former AD at the university of Buffalo before moving down South to become a Tiger. He graduated from Notre Dame with a degree in finance. He was also a three-year starter in baseball and was selected by the New York Yankees in the 1998 MLB draft and played in the team’s minor league system until March of 2001. He then went back to school, earning his master’s degree from Indiana University and then moved into the world of college sports.

He held multiple positions at various schools before moving up to athletic director at the University of Buffalo, including business development at the University of Mississippi, school compliance at Notre Dame and deputy of athletics at Buffalo.

Green has big expectations and big plans for the Tigers, and he shares his vision of the future of the Tigers and his path towards success with us.
