Katherine Greene

Assistant Athletic Director/Head Women's Basketball Coach




Athletic Center

Katie Greene serves as both the Head Women’s Basketball Coach and Assistant Athletic Director for Student-Athlete Success, as well as the department’s Senior Woman Administrator.

Greene is the ninth head coach in Mount Ida women’s basketball history. Off the court, she is responsible for supervising the department’s Title IX compliance efforts, monitoring the academic success model for student-athletes, and overseeing the educational and life skills development of student-athletes, which include an annual speaker series, captain’s leadership academy and first year and returning orientations, along with conduct violations and civic engagement for student-athletes.

Greene is no stranger to women’s basketball in the Newton area, having spent six seasons as the head coach at neighboring Newbury College, where she turned a struggling program around and brought the Nighthawks to their first ever conference tournament playoff appearance in 2009 and their first postseason victory in 2012, when they reached the semifinals of the New England Collegiate Conference (NECC) tournament.

Greene also spent her first four years as the sports information director for Newbury and held the title of Assistant Athletic Director until she departed in May of 2013 to take the Director of Basketball Operations job at Division 1 Brown University.

Most recently before coming to Mount Ida, she spent two years as an assistant coach and Director of Basketball Operations for Brown, where she coached three All-Ivy League Players and was the program’s point person for everything from recruiting, scouting, coordinating team travel and logistics, camps, and community relations. Greene coached the Mustangs against her former squad on November 19, 2015, when Mount Ida travelled to Brown.

Prior to her time at Newbury, Greene was an assistant at fellow Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) foe Simmons College, where she helped the team to three straight playoff appearances.

She also played in the GNAC as an undergraduate at former conference member and local rival Pine Manor College, where she was the first 12-letter athlete in Gator history. She received the Lifetime Achievement Award in athletics in 2003 before graduating with a Bachelor’s of Arts in communications.
