I seem to remember an article in Volleyball Magazine or AVCA's Coaching Volleyball not too
long ago about Debbie Green . . . but couldn't find either to give you a date. Maybe one of
the other RSVers will know. I believe she was on TWO USA Olympic teams, including the one that
had to boycott the '80 games. Unfortunately neither of the two Long Beach websites has coach
bios. Anyway, here are a couple of articles I found that mention her career:

Here is one from the 1997 Long Beach State University women's volleyball
guide.

"Assistant coach Debbie Green returns for her 12th year of service at LBSU.
 Green, at two-time U.S. Olympic Volleyball team member, is still
considered the best setter in the history of women's volleyball.

The two-time collegiate All-American at USC (1976-77) was recently bestowed
with volleyball's highest honor - induction into the Volleyball Hall of
Fame.  She joined Robert L. Lindsay, C. L. "Bobb" Miller and Arie Selinger
as the inductees during a ceremony, Oct. 20, 1995, as part of the 1995
Centennial celebration of the founding of the sport of volleyball.

The enthusiastic educator has proven that she can coach as well as can set,
grooming three All-American setters : Joy McKienzie in 1993, Sabrina
Hernandez in 1992 and Sherri Sanders in 1989.  McKienzie, in 1993, and
Sanders, in 1989, both quarterbacked the 49ers to national championships,
while Hernandez took The Beach to back-to-back Final Fours (1991-92).

Green was a member of the 1980 Olympic team (which boycotted the Moscow
games) and, in 1984, helped lead the U.S. to a silver medal in the 23rd
Olympiad of Los Angeles.  She also represented the U.S. in three World
Championships.  Green was a member of the L.A. Starlites of the
professional women's volleyball league when the Starlites captured the
league's first two championships. in 1987 and 1988.

As a collegiate player, Green helped lead the Trojans to two AIAW National
Championships.  In 1986 she was selected to the U.S. Volleyball Association
Hall of Fame, and in the spring of 1986 she received the All-Time Great
Volleyball Player award.  She is one of 41 recipients of the award - only
15 have been female.  Four members of the 1984 U.S. Olympic team were
selected and Green was the only woman.  The late Flo Hyman was selected in
1985.

While a prep at Westminster High, Green was a part of the Adidas Junior
Team, which swept the USVBA All-American, and at age 16 was the youngest to
be so honored.  Green also competed in two Pan American Games, winning the
silver medal in 1983.

Over the past few years, Green has spoken at numerous clinics and camps.
The mother of two girls, Nicole, 11, and Dana, 9, Green graduated from LBSU
in August, 1992, with a BA in speech communication."

Updates are - her 13th season at LBSU in '98, 4 All-American setters with
Misty May last year, another Final Four last year too, and Nicole is 12 and
Dana is 10.
