Exit interview: Kevin Greene 

January, 23, 2014
Signing with the Trojans in 2009 as a member of Pete Carroll’s final recruiting haul at USC, Kevin Greene was part of a group that went through a roller coaster ride of emotions in their time on campus, but that now finds themselves leaving on a positive note after overcoming a number of obstacles on their way to a 10-win season in 2013.

Garnering a reputation as a tireless worker with a selfless mentality, Greene spent the first four years of his career as a reserve on defense, primarily at defensive end, before being asked to make the transition to tight end this past August during fall camp. Making a full-time switch to the position midway through the schedule after moving back to defense at outside linebacker for the early portion of the season, the fifth-year senior provided crucial depth at a spot that was in desperate need of healthy bodies. A popular player amongst his teammates, the Oakland (Calif.) native also served an important function as a veteran leader.

Having recently earned a master’s degree in digital technology to go along with his undergraduate degree in communications, Greene took time out to talk to WeAreSC about his Trojans career while also revealing what’s on tap for the next phase of his life.
