Greg Young joined the UT Arlington men's basketball staff in 2010 and remains on the staff as associate head coach under new head coach Chris Ogden in 2018-19.

UT Arlington went 175-118 during Young's tenure and has advanced to the postseason four times. The Mavericks were Southland Conference regular-season champions in 2011-12, reached the Western Athletic Conference Tournament championship game in 2013 and earned the Sun Belt Conference regular season title in 2017.

Young was named one of the Top 5 Southland Conference Assistant Coaches in Jeff Goodman's "Yardbarker" blog for 2010-11. Young served as the program's recruiting coordinator, defensive coordinator and oversees player development.

Young came to UT Arlington from Jacksonville (Texas) College, where he spent four years as the head coach of the Jaguars. He also served as the school's athletic director.

He led his team to a 21-10 record in 2008-09 which was one of the best seasons in school history. The Jaguars spent the majority of the season in the NJCAA national rankings and Young was honored following the campaign as the Region XIV Coach of the Year.

Young registered an overall record of 168-139 in 10 seasons as a junior college head coach. He has also had 55 players sign with four-year institutions, including 26 with Division I schools.

Young went to Jacksonville College from Texas State where he served for five years as the Bobcats recruiting coordinator. During his tenure the Bobcats played in the Southland Conference Tournament each season. He signed eight Top 100 players, according to Texas Hoops, during those five seasons. The Bobcats finished the 2002-03 season with the third most victories in school history as a Division I program.

Prior to his tenure at Texas State, Young was the head coach at Hill College for two seasons. He led the Rebels to consecutive Region V Tournament appearances and in 1999-2000 led the team to the regional tournament championship game. That was the first time the school had reached the finals since 1974.

From 1994-1998 Young was the head coach at Lamar (Colo.) Community College. Young turned the Lopes into a Region VIX contender in his four years there, twice reaching the Region VIX tournament quarterfinals.

Young was the assistant coach at Eastern New Mexico from 1991-94. He helped lead the Greyhounds to the Lone Star Conference title in 1992 and an appearance in the NCAA Division II Sweet Sixteen in the school's first-ever NCAA Tournament appearance.

Young also spent time as an assistant coach at Cleburne (Tex.) High School during the 1990-91 season and as an assistant at Texas Wesleyan from 1986-90.

A native of Cleburne, Tex., Young was a three-sport athlete at Cleburne High School, lettering in football, basketball and baseball. He then went on to play basketball at Howard Payne University where he was a four-year basketball letterman. He was named a captain his senior season and received the distinguished Paul J. Cunningham Award for excellence and dedication his senior year.

Young graduated from Howard Payne in 1986 with a bachelor's degree in physical education. He later earned his master's in education from Texas Wesleyan in 1990.

Young and his wife Nicole have one daughter, Regan.
