MIAMI (July 12, 2012) - Head Coach Trevor Theroulde has announced the addition of Travers Green as assistant coach to the FIU indoor volleyball squad.

Green comes to FIU from Lake Mary High School in Lake Mary, Fla., where he spent the last three seasons as the girls' varsity volleyball coach. Green was 61-23 in his tenure with the Lady Rams and won back-to-back Seminole Athletic Conference titles in 2009 and 2010.

Lake Mary is coming off a 2011 season in which the Lady Rams compiled an overall record of 15-12. In 2010, Lake Mary went 24-6 and repeated as SAC Champions, also winning a district title. During Green's first year at the helm of the Lady Rams volleyball program in 2009, he guided Lake Mary to a 22-5 record and the team's first conference title since 1997. While at Lake Mary, Green was also involved in community efforts, as he organized the Dig Pink Festival, which donated more than $35,000 toward breast cancer research over three years.

In addition to his high school coaching experience, Green brings club volleyball coaching experience to the sideline at FIU. His Orlando Volleyball Academy's (OVA) 16 Molten team's most notable 2011 tournament finish came at the end of the season, as his squad placed second in the nation at AAU Nationals in the 16 Club Division out of 175 teams. During the 2010 campaign, Green's squad finished tied for fifth at the USA Volleyball Junior National Championships in the 16 American Division, and tied for ninth out of 152 teams at AAU Nationals. For his efforts, he was named Male Coach of the Year for the club.

Prior to joining OVA and Lake Mary HS, Green coached for North Florida Volleyball Academy, assisting Olympic silver medalist and current FIU Assistant Athletic Director/Sand Volleyball Head Coach, Rita Buck-Crockett. He also served coaching stints at Florida High and Madison County High School.

Green earned a bachelor's degree in recreation management and leisure services from Florida State University in 2008. He served as director of the men's volleyball club team and was a three-year captain and starting setter for the Seminoles, while also assisting with the women's volleyball club squad.

A 2003 graduate of Lake Mary HS, Green was a member of the volleyball team that went to the Inaugural Boy's High School State Championship Tournament. During his senior campaign, he was selected to the all-conference team while setting the record for most assists in a season.
