SEWARD, Neb. – Eleven-year Concordia head softball coach Frank Greene officially announced Thursday morning that he is resigning his position with the university, effective at the conclusion of the 2013 season. Greene has compiled a record of 301-185 (.619) during his time at the helm of Bulldog softball.
“It’s been a labor of love,” Greene said. “I want to remain close to the university. Anything I can do to help Concordia I will do it. It will always be near and dear to my heart. It was simply time for me to move on. I pray and wish the very best for everyone and hope that the university continues to grow and prosper. I want to thank President (Brian) Friedrich and Devin Smith for the opportunity they have given me.”
Director of Athletics Devin Smith added, “We are extremely grateful for Frank’s contributions to the Bulldog softball program and university over his 11 years here. Frank brought great passion to the program and truly cared about his student-athletes while consistently placing his teams at or near the top of the GPAC. He will be missed greatly.”
Greene, the winningest coach in Bulldog softball history, guided Concordia to GPAC regular-season championships in 2005 and 2008 and a GPAC tournament title in 2007. In 2005 he was named the NAIA Region IV Coach of the Year and the GPAC Co-Coach of the Year. The 2005 Bulldogs went 36-19 overall and 20-4 in conference play.
Greene has served two different stints as head coach having been at the helm of the program from 2000 to 2008 and from 2010 to the present and will assist the next coach in the transition to the new role. His wife Cindy continues to work in placement and counseling at Concordia.
