    Green still being paraded around like he’s a hero at Mason is another reason why we’ll see Paulsen here for two more years. New admin same culture

    On a side note, is there a way to find out if Coach L was also getting paid as professor?

    Like most university president searches, it's kept pretty closely by the Search Committee. I believe they may do some "airport" interviews without publicizing names. I know faculty often grumble about the lack of seeing and hearing from the finalists prior to an announcement of who the president will be.

    The argument for being so secretive is that interested candidates don't want their home institutions to know that they are considering leaving and don't want it known when they haven't been selected.

    Happy birthday to our savior and large donor getter @darrell Greene. He is absolutely not a part of the good ole boys club cashing a $100k check and having a secretary and 3 folks under him to do absolutely nothing. What a guy, where would we be as a program without him?!

    I can't find much but he did spend some time at MaryMount University if that is what you are thinking of. Either way his post-football life is pretty hidden other than his charity

    "He capitalized on his last year as a professional football player to bring attention to what Green sees as his ultimate career. His passionate commitment to strengthening families and helping children is at the center of his long-range goals and was the impetus for the founding of the Darrell Green Youth Life Foundation (DGYLF). Since 1988, the DGYLF has offered opportunities for children and their families. The DGYLF provides a wide-range of academic development and values-based education programs through learning centers operating in select urban, suburban, and rural neighborhoods throughout America.

    Green considers the Darrell Green Youth Life Learning Center (DGLC) the centerpiece of the DGYLF. The DGLC was established in 1993 to equip youth to address obstacles they face while training them to provide quality leadership for their peers, family members, and their community. The DGLC flagship center in Northeast Washington, DC and its Richmond, VA, and Nashville, TN affiliates currently operate in the DGYLF network with an expansion plan for other centers underway. He has founded the Darrell Green Business Council for Youth bringing together business leaders to utilize their expertise in support of DGYLF programs. In addition, he served as a board member for the Baltimore-Washington 2012 Olympic Bid, NFL/NFLPA September 11th Relief Fund, and the Loudoun Education Foundation. In 2003, he was selected to serve as the Chair of President Bush’s Council on Service and Civic Participation. The Council consists of an outstanding group of Americans who will work together to strengthen and promote service and civic participation. He currently sits on the boards of the WolfTrap Foundation as its National Spokesman for Education, Washington, DC’s Board of Trade, and Marymount University.

    Green has also flourished in the business arena, successfully operating a number of companies in a variety of industries under the conglomerate, Darrell Green Holdings. Darrell Green Enterprises manages endorsements, speaking engagements, and autograph signings for a growing roster of current and former athletes. Intekras, Inc is a SBA-certified 8(a) company offering integrated solutions in three primary disciplines: Information Security, National Security and Defense Systems. Trusted Solutions Group specializes in providing training and workforce development solutions to government and industry. Darrell Green Mortgage and Score Title & Escrow serve the residential real estate market in the Washington, DC Metropolitan Area.

    Green completed his Bachelor of Science degree in general studies and social science at St. Paul’s College in Lawrenceville, Virginia. In 1999, Marymount University recognized Green for his extraordinary humanitarian endeavors and conferred upon him the honorary Doctorate of Humane Letters degree. In 2002, George Washington University and St. Paul’s College awarded Green his second and third honorary Doctorate of Humane Letters degrees."

    After reading this I hope that Green steps in a dog turd in his front yard. Dude does everything except the job that is paying him 100k annually FROM THE STATE!

    What are you talking about? His in-person fee is $30-50k. We are getting a steal at $100k for the number of appearances he makes on campus!

    I mean are we though? Last I heard he only appears on campus 1-2 times a year. You'd think we get a frequent flier account with him or something. Hometown discount?

    Also have to take all of the earned media into account. Guy wears his HOF jacket or a Mason polo in almost every interview he does. That’s worth a ton.

    earned media hasn't helped our large donor base considering it hasn't changed at all since he came in
