Augusta names Green women’s basketball coach

Millette Green will become the ninth head coach in the history of Augusta’s women’s basketball team. She replaces Nate Teymer.

Millette Green is looking to build some consistency with the Augusta University women's basketball program.

Earlier this month, Green was named the ninth head coach in the program's 43-year history.

She replaces Nate Teymer, who stepped down after this past season.

"Some of my core values are accountability, hard work, discipline, loyalty, and you're going to see us active in the community," Green said. "From my conversation with the players, they really want to develop their team chemistry and improve their conditioning. I think that can definitely impact the outcome of our season."

Green, a 2003 University of Maryland-Baltimore County graduate, spent the past five years as an assistant at William & Mary in the Division I Colonial Athletic Association. The Tribe posted one of the best seasons in program history last year, tying a school record with 20 wins and advancing to the conference semifinals for the first time since 2001.

Before her time at William & Mary, Green spent three seasons at Fairleigh Dickinson and two seasons at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI). She has either led or assisted recruiting efforts at all stops and said she's ready to hit the recruiting trail for Augusta.

"I had the opportunity to study under four coaches over the past 10 years and really learn, including coaches I played for as well," Green said. "I've been a sponge trying to learn as much as possible, identify things I need to do in a head coaching role. Now it's my job to apply those things."

Green takes over an Augusta program that went 24-9 and reached the Division II Sweet Sixteen in 2016, one of the best seasons in program history, before going 13-13 and missing the Peach Belt Conference tournament last season.

Green takes over for Nate Teymer, who went 96-96 and resigned after seven seasons.

Teymer was recently named an assistant at Texas State.

"She's a proven winner," Augusta athletic director Clint Bryant said. "What stood her above the crowd is she's a tremendous person and one that will make this university proud, but will also be a role model for not only the students here in Augusta, but in the surrounding areas. She's someone they can look up to and model their life after."
