Mustang will be looking for a new boys basketball coach after Alan Green moved into a full-time compliance role with the school's athletic department.

Green had spent the last two years handling compliance on a part-time basis, while also coaching and teaching a couple classes a day.

But when the opportunity came available to handle compliance on a full-time basis, Green took it.

“The time was right for me,” he said. “I'm looking forward to the challenge. It's probably the first of its kind in Oklahoma.”

Green got the Broncos within one game of the Class 6A state tournament in 2011 with a senior-laden lineup that kept the team ranked in the top 5 much of the year. This past season, Mustang struggled through a rebuilding year, finishing 9-15.

Mustang is the largest school on the west side of the state, according to average attendance for the 2010-11 school year, and fifth-largest in the state.

With Edmond North and Edmond Santa Fe's head basketball vacancies now filled, Mustang, Guthrie and Mount St. Mary are the top boys basketball jobs currently open in the metro area.
