Australian professional rugby league football coach, best known for taking the North Queensland Cowboys to the NRL premiership in 2015, Paul Gregory Green died by suicide at his Wynnum, Brisbane, home on 11 August 2022, aged 49.
As a professional rugby league footballer, Green played in the 1990s and 2000s.
According to Green’s family, friends and colleagues, the Queensland football great showed no signs of struggling with his mental health before he took his life back in August.
“Paul wasn’t depressed, [he] showed no signs of mental health issues, his family was everything to him,” his wife Amanda Green told The Weekend Australian.
Green played for Cronulla-Sutherland, North Queensland Cowboys, Sydney Roosters, Parramatta Eels and the Brisbane Broncos, winning the Rothmans Medal in 1995. He was a Queensland State of Origin and Australian international representative halfback.
As a coach Green guided the North Queensland club to their first premiership in 2015 and to another grand final two years later.
