Liberal High School has named Rob Green as a new assistant football coach. Green, 55, spent two years as head coach in Piedmont, Okla., a 4A school just northwest of Oklahoma City.
Green’s Wildcats went 3-7 last season and 5-15 in two seasons under Green. He replaces Joe Price, who was Liberal’s offensive line coach last season, but moved to Garden City Community College.
Liberal head coach Wade Standley said Green will coach on the offensive side of the ball, but would not say what specific position.
“We’re real excited to have him on board with us,” Standley said. “He brings a ton of experience to us and has been extremely successful.”
Green was also head coach at Putnam City West in Oklahoma City, Grove and Northeastern Oklahoma A&M. He also worked at Edmond Memorial and Missouri Southern University.
“I think it’ll be an exciting thing,” Green told The Oklahoman. “I’m looking forward to it. I’ve got lots of coaching left in me. I’m not one of those guys who wants to sit around and go fishing. I’ll always be coaching.”
Standley was familiar with Green from his days as a coach in Oklahoma.
“I’ve known of coach Green since I got into coaching because he’s been very successful,” said Standley, who was defensive coordinator at Tulsa Union before coming to Liberal. “We were acquaintances. I knew of him and knew what a great coach he was. We talked about the position here and just excited that it worked out.”
