PANAMA CITY, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) -As we told you Tuesday night, the Mosley Dolphins have a new head coach in the fold for the boys basketball program. Derrio Green officially announced Wednesday as the Dolphins next head coach.

That done through an email release to us. Green is a 2007 Mosley graduate who was a star basketball player for the Dolphins. He went on to play at Gulf Coast and then at the University of North Carolina Charlotte, where he averaged 13 points a game for two seasons. He graduated Charlotte with a math degree. Green got into coaching just last year, moving from banking to teaching and becoming an assistant coach at Arnold.

Derrio replaced Darin Ford who quit after one season guiding the program. Coach Green telling us “It means everything to me to become the coach at Mosley. I went to school there, I played there. My sister and my cousin graduated from Mosley. It’s a blessing to come back home to coach at the place I grew up. And at the place I helped build the basketball culture at.”

Jay Powell, who coached Green for a season at Gulf Coast told me “Derrio is one of the finest young men I ever coached. A terrific basketball player and an even better person. I think he will be a great addition to Mosley and will be a great coach and mentor to the student-athletes in that program.”

Coach Green telling us his first priority is fundraising, and then he’ll start looking ahead to putting together a summer program and hopefully a summer season for the team.
