Green Returns to Huskers as Assistant Wrestling Coach

Former Nebraska wrestling legend James Green is now a full-time assistant coach for the Huskers.

Head coach Mark Manning announced the hiring of Green Thursday.  In a news release, Manning said: “The attitude, work ethic and commitment to excellence that James competed with both as a Husker and a six-time USA Wrestling World Team member gives our student-athletes a prime example of someone to imitate.”  

Green was a Big Ten champion in 2014 when he became just the second four-time All-American in school history.
