The Spokane newspaper reported that Greene had been dismissed because of "conduct issues." The paper did not provide any further details or quotes.
Greene, an All-American at Washington State in the 70s, came to Washington State from Purdue prior to the 2003 season to coach the secondary. He found immediate success with seniors Erik Coleman and Jason David leading the way in the defensive backfield as the Cougs' 10-3 record included a Holiday Bowl win over Texas and Washington State capped their third straight season ranked in the Top Ten. The following three seasons in the defensive backfield, however, did not match that success.
Following the 2006 season, Greene's on-field responsibilities were narrowed to coaching the cornerbacks, with linebackers coach Leon Burtnett moving to the safeties. Defensive coordinator Robb Akey's departure for the head job at Idaho had resulted in coach Bill Doba moving to take over the defensive coordinator and linebacking duties.
CF.C will have more on the story as it develops.
