Greene leaving PVHS after 27 years as coach
SoVaNow.com / April 24, 2013Regardless of where the Dragons finish in the district standings, the Park View baseball program will suffer a huge loss at the end of this season: longtime head coach Mike Greene has announced his retirement from Mecklenburg County Public Schools.
“It was a really tough (decision),” said Greene. “I am going to retire from Mecklenburg County and teach algebra and coach baseball and assist in basketball at Brunswick Academy.”
While he does not want to take the focus away from the kids who are playing in his final season at Park View, Greene noted that he has been coaching for 27 years at Park View and has been head coach for 22 years.
His name is synonymous with baseball in Mecklenburg County, both as Park View skipper and manager of the summertime American Legion ball team in South Hill. By his own estimates, Greene has coached over 1,000 baseball players in his career.
He was also Mecklenburg County's teacher of the year in 2011.
