Green named Head Women’s Basketball Coach at Virginia Wesleyan

Megan Green, currently Assistant Women’s Coach at Dickinson College, has been named the new Head Women’s Basketball Coach at Virginia Wesleyan University, according to Andrea Hoover-Erbig, Executive Director of Intercollegiate Athletics.

She replaces Quntashea Lewis, who resigned at the conclusion of the season. 

“With an impressive track record and a passion for the game, Megan brings invaluable experience and a commitment to excellence to the Marlins’ athletic program,”  said Hoover-Erbig.  “She has had tremendous success both as a player and coach. Her dedication, strategic insight, and mentorship significantly contributed to the team’s success, solidifying her reputation as a rising star in collegiate basketball coaching.”

Prior to joining Virginia Wesleyan University, Megan served as the Assistant Coach at Dickinson College.  In her first year at Dickinson, the team accumulated a 17-8 record and the coaching staff earned Coaching Staff of the Year honors for the Centennial Conference, marking a milestone as the first in program history. During her second year with the program, Megan played an instrumental role in leading the team to a 19-win season – a feat not achieved since 2007.

“It has been a pleasure working with Megan the past two seasons. She is a proven winner and has been successful at every stop of her coaching career,” said Dickinson Head Coach Aby Diop. “Her passion, dedication, and excitement for the game will be felt immediately by the Marlin community. I couldn’t be more proud as Megan’s impact as a leader and role model expands beyond the court has made a difference here. I look forward to watching the difference she will make at VWU.”

Before her tenure at Dickinson College, Megan honed her coaching skills as the Assistant Coach at her alma mater, the University of Mary Washington. During her time there, she demonstrated her leadership abilities and played an integral part in shaping the team’s performance and fostering a culture of excellence both on and off the court. She earned her Master’s degree in Athletic Leadership from Castleton University in Vermont while serving as the graduate assistant for their women’s basketball program.

I would like to thank President Dr. Miller, Andrea Hoover-Erbig, and the entire athletic department for the opportunity to lead this program. I am extremely grateful for this incredible opportunity and am excited to hit the ground running!
