Scott Greenman is entering his fifth season as an assistant coach at American University in 2017-18.
In his fourth season at American, Greenman was responsible for recruiting Patriot League All-Rookie member Sa'eed Nelson, who led the team in scoring with 14.9 points per game. Under Greenman's tutelage, the guards averaged 56 percent of the team's points.
Greenman played a major role in recruiting the 2015-2016 freshmen class — comprising of two 3-star recruits — including Patriot League Rookie of the Year, Delante Jones. Prior to his rookie season with the Eagles, Jones was named the league’s preseason top freshman by Lindy’s Sports and CollegeSportsMadness.com.
The four-person freshmen class played 42% of the team's minutes in league play and accounted for over 45% of the team's points. Similar to the previous two seasons, the young Eagles finished the year playing their best ball, going 10-4 in their last 14 games.
In Greenman's three seasons at American, the Eagles have gone 6-2 in the Patriot League Conference Tournament.
In his first two seasons as Brennan's top assistant, Greenman helped lead the Eagles to back-to-back Patriot League Tournament Championship games, winning the league and advancing to the NCAA Tournament in 2013-2014, and upset top-seeded Boston University, 55-36, to claim AU’s third Patriot League Championship.
The Eagles were ranked nationally in the top-10 in field goal percentage (.495) and points allowed per game (59.1), finishing seventh in each category. The Eagles were also 37th in the country with 15.1 assists per game.
Prior to coming to American, Greenman spent three seasons at Georgetown, being promoted from Assistant Director of Basketball Operations after just one season with the Hoyas. He worked directly with Brennan, then an assistant, all three years. Greenman was involved in all aspects of the day-to-day operations of the program including scouting, film breakdown, on-campus recruiting and camps.
Georgetown won at least 21 games in each of his three seasons, securing 10-plus Big East wins and berths into the NCAA Tournament every season as well as the conference regular season title in 2013.
Prior to Georgetown, Greenman was an assistant coach at Princeton from 2007-10, where he helped orchestrate the biggest two-year turnaround in the history of the program. He was instrumental in building a team that would eventually win the Ivy League Championship and play in the 2011 NCAA Tournament.
In 2009, Greenman was selected as the head coach of the U.S.A. U-18 Maccabiah Team. The team spent the month of July in Israel competing in the Maccabiah Games, where they won a silver medal.
Greenman spent the 2006-07 season playing professionally in Israel for B'nei Ha'sharon, helping lead his team to a final four finish in both the Israeli Premier League Championship and the Israeli Cup.
Greenman played collegiately at Princeton from 2002-06 for current Georgetown head coach John Thompson III. In his senior year, he was named a unanimous first team All-Ivy selection in 2006 and named to the Academic All-Ivy League Team. During Greenman's sophomore year, he started every game and made a team-high 42 three-pointers en route to helping Princeton win the Ivy League and reach the 2004 NCAA tournament.
Greenman earned a bachelor's degree in sociology from Princeton in June 2006. He currently resides in Falls Church, Va., with his wife Caitlin and their son, Jordan.
