With enthusiasm and confidence, Allen Greene cast his vision for the department he will oversee. “Our quest for championships will be unwavering,” Greene said Friday after Auburn University president Dr. Steven Leath introduced him as Auburn’s 15th Director of Athletics. Speaking to an audience that included student-athletes from each Auburn sport, Greene prioritized their educational experience, competing for championships and developing leaders. “No. 1, we want our young people to graduate,” he said. “We will be winners. We will be champions. Our mission is to provide you as student-athletes and coaches every opportunity to win SEC championships. We will invest ourselves heavily to do so. The third African-American athletics director in Southeastern Conference history, Greene addressed his history-making appointment by referencing Henry Harris, Auburn’s first black athlete in 1968. The consensus choice of Auburn’s search committee, Greene comes to the Plains from the University of Buffalo, where he served as athletics director the past two years. –Read More
