Allen Greene emerges as top choice to replace Jay Jacobs

According to 247Sports, Auburn will hire Buffalo AD Allen Greene, making him only the second African-American AD in SEC history. He served as deputy AD and senior associate AD under Danny White, who left the school to become athletic director at the University of Central Florida in Orlando.

The hiring of Greene could be made official later this week.

He will replace current Auburn AD Jay Jacobs, who announced his retirement in November with the intention to hold the job until June 2018 or until the school found a replacement.

He was promoted to Athletics Director in 2015.

While at Buffalo, Greene has raised funds for a to-be-built $18 million indoor practice facility, which had been discussed for almost 20 years, other capital projects, landed an apparel deal with Nike and has led the development of a facilities master plan.

Neither Greene nor an athletic department spokesman responded to messages left for comment by the News on Wednesday night.
