He caught the ceremonial first pitch from President George W. Bush prior to Game 3 of the 2001 World Series. After finishing his playing career with the San Diego Padres' organization in 2007, Greene transitioned to the club's scouting department where he became a professional scout.
In January 2009, Greene joined the Tampa Bay Rays' organization as a Quality Assurance Coach where he served as a uniformed coordinator throughout Spring Training and all pre-game practices. Greene's primary responsibilities included assisting with catching instruction and serving as a liaison between the scouting department and the club, including advance series preparations. In November 2009, Greene was added to the Seattle Mariners' scouting department as a professional scout for the 2010 season.
During his collegiate career at Georgia Southern, Greene was a four-time All-American where he set school records for hits (311), home runs (88), RBI (257), total bases (640) and slugging percentage (.709).
