Green then left the Hawks for nearby Midland College in 1991 where he led the Chaps to a record of 73 wins and 24 losses and a top-10 NJCAA national ranking in his three years guiding the team. He was named Region 5 Coach of the Year for the 1993-94 season when his team took home the regional championship to earn his second trip to the national tournament.
