Scott Greenman is entering his sixth season as an assistant coach at American University in 2018-2019. 

Greenman is responsible for all aspects of the program, including the recruiting efforts of a staff that have recruited 4 players who have been placed on the Patriot League All-Rookie Team in the past 3 seasons (including the 2016 Rookie of the Year). Greenman played a lead role in recruiting Sa’eed Nelson, a junior guard who’s amassed nearly 1,000 points in two years and has led the team in scoring in both his freshmen and sophomore seasons.

In Greenman's five seasons at American, the Eagles have gone 6-4 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, Greenman 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 three sons, Jordan, Brayden, and Eli.
