Former Auburn athletic director Allen Greene takes job at Tennessee

Allen Greene, Auburn University athletic director from 2018-2022, found a new home in a familiar conference after moving on from his one-year tenure at Ole Miss.

It was announced Thursday that Greene has officially signed on with the University of Tennessee to become its new Senior Deputy Athletics Director.

“One of the key objectives from our strategic plan ‘Rise Glorious’ was to attract goal-driven and intensely competitive teammates to strengthen our family-oriented, innovative and fearless culture and Allen is a tremendous addition to our leadership team,” Volunteers Athletic Director Danny White said.

“Allen’s one of the most dynamic and engaging leaders I’ve been fortunate to work alongside, and I am thrilled to be able to add one of the stars of our profession and his wonderful family to Rocky Top.”

Greene said he’s is looking forward to working at Tennessee.

“I’m very appreciative for this opportunity to once again be a teammate with Danny and join the talented executive team he has assembled at Tennessee,” he said in a statement. “The Tennessee brand is second to none and I am looking forward to help propel UT athletics in this modern era of our industry.”

“My family and I can’t wait to get started on Rocky Top.”

From 2015 to 2018 Green was the athletics director for Buffalo.
