Brisbane, QLD
Joined Club:

2018 is Green's fifth year in charge of the North Queensland Toyota Cowboys, after signing on at the helm in late 2013. Following a heartbreaking second-week finals exit to the Sydney Roosters in 2014, Green piloted the team to premiership glory in 2015, where the Cowboys defeated the Brisbane Broncos 17-16 in golden point extra-time.

The Cowboys made the finals for the sixth straight year in 2016, advancing all the way to the preliminary final before being defeated by eventual premiers Cronulla. Season 2017 was a rollercoaster, with the team overcoming injury and adversity to make it all the way to their second NRL grand final in three years.
