GREELEY, Colo. — Dorian Green is back on the basketball scene in Northern Colorado.

The former star of the CSU men's hoops team has been hired as an assistant at the University of Northern Colorado, the Bears announced late last week.

Green is the sixth-leading scorer in Colorado State University men's hoops history and fourth in career assists. 

The 130 games he played, starting each one, from 2009-13 is the most in program history. He helped lead the Rams to back-to-back NCAA tournaments in 2012 and 2013.
