A social studies teacher at the school, he becomes only the seventh Athletic Director in Stang’s history. He follows Carlin Lynch, John O’Brien, Bill Hart, Peter Shaughnessy, Ryan Silvia, and current Athletics Director Dennis Golden.

Greene, who lives in Dartmouth with his wife, Kristen, said he is “honored and extremely grateful for the opportunity to lead an athletic program with incredible tradition here at Bishop Stang. Over the past six years, I have witnessed firsthand what a special place this is and how meaningful a role athletics can play in our community. I am eager to work closely with our student-athletes, coaches, and Bishop Stang families in this exciting new role.’’

Bishop Stang President James Benson noted that "Bishop Stang is eager for Nate Greene to take on this role of Athletic Director. Nate has proven his commitment to the mission of our school, which I have observed in his daily interactions with both student-athletes and coaches. His passionate, yet thoughtful and level-headed approach to planning will serve our school well for years to come.’’

Greene is a graduate of Curry College with a bachelor of arts degree in politics & history. He acquired a master’s degree in secondary education from the University of Massachusetts Amherst, followed by a Certificate in Athletic Administration from Providence College. 

Current Athletic Director Golden will continue to lead the football team as coach and will transition into the Bishop Stang Counseling Department, returning to his roots as a guidance counselor. 

“Making an impact is a goal for all of us,” Golden said. “I believe that I can be effective and make an impact in this role. Working with students is what we all love to do. It is always fun and it is always rewarding. I look forward to building new relationships and to helping students in all possible avenues”.

Of Greene’s appointment, Golden said that “Nate Greene is extremely bright and he brings great energy as well as great organization to our Bishop Stang community each day. He has a plan each day and he is positive. Nate has been highly impactful both as a teacher and as a coach. He has done an outstanding job coaching both boys and girls, and his students and players are fiercely loyal to him.’’

Benson added that he is “grateful for Dennis Golden's service to our Athletic Department. Dennis was critical in helping the school safely navigate the challenges of planning competitions during Covid. His tireless work ethic has been an inspiration to many and has served our athletic program well over the past six years. I am excited for the positive impact he will have on the students as he transitions to our school counseling office.’’
