Rome, Ga. - The Shorter College athletic department announced today the hiring of Matt Green as Sports Information Director.

Green comes to Shorter from Hampden-Sydney College in Hampden-Sydney, Virginia where he served one year as Sports Information Director after one year as Assistant Sports Information Director.

"We are excited to have someone of Matt's background join us at Shorter," said Shorter athletic director Bill Peterson. "He's a bright, energetic and extremely capable man in the sports information field."

A native of Richmond, Virginia, Green graduated from Hampden-Sydney in 2007 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Mathematical Economics. He is currently on track to receive his Master's degree in Sports Management from Virginia Commonwealth University in December 2009.

Green was a three-year point guard for Hampden-Sydney's basketball team after transferring from Dartmouth College in the fall of 2004. He served as a two-year captain for the Tigers and helped bring the program its tenth Old Dominion Athletic Conference championship and 13th trip to the NCAA Division III National Tournament during his senior season in 2007.

"Grant Kersey (who is leaving to continue his education) did a wonderful job in his three years with us, and took the department to a whole new level," added Peterson. "Matt will build on that and take us from one of the best in the country, to the best in the country."
