Shawn Green Named NEICAAA Commissioner

BOSTON, Mass. – Shawn Green, Associate Athletic Director for Compliance at the University of New Hampshire, has been named the new Commissioner of the New England Intercollegiate Amateur Athletic Association (NEICAAA). He replaces Irwin Cohen who retired at the end of the 2023 academic year. Shawn had previously served on the NEICAAA Executive Board.

"The NEICAAA Executive Committee chose Shawn Green with advice from an expanded group of involved coaches. The larger group interviewed several excellent candidates and recommended Shawn as the best fit for what the Association needs right now", said Mark Connolly, Head Track & Field Coach at Merrimack College who led the search team for Cohen's replacement.

Prior to arriving at UNH, Shawn served as Assistant Athletic Director at Southern New Hampshire University and held a term on the NCAA Division II Cross Country Committee. Before moving into administrative roles, Shawn was the Head Coach for Men's and Women's Cross Country and Track & Field at Quinnipiac University and has also served as the Head Coach for Men's Cross Country and Track & Field at Southern Connecticut State University. Shawn's Quinnipiac University Women's Cross Country team won the 2007 New England Championships.

"Shawn brings his experience as a coach, enthusiasm demonstrated by his involvement, and the advantage of his position as a university administrator. We look forward to working with Shawn as he leads the Association in growing its membership, continuing the trend of competitiveness at our Championships and listening to the membership as we move the Association forward," Connolly said.

Shawn is a former Vice President of the New England Women’s Intercollegiate Cross Country/Track and Field Association and just finished his term on the NCAA D1 XC/Track & Field Committee.

"I am incredibly grateful to the NEICAAA Executive Committee for this opportunity, and I would also like to thank Irwin Cohen for all his years of service to the NEICAAA," Shawn said. "I am looking forward to working with all of you to make the NEICAAA Championships the best possible experience for our student-athletes, coaches and fans."

Shawn began his collegiate track and field career as a student-athlete at UNH. He competed in cross country and track & field and ran his first New England Championships in 1993.
