Preheat grill. Brush green onions with some of the remaining oil and and season with salt and pepper to taste. Grill for 2 to 3 minutes on each side until almost cooked through. Remove to a plate.
Remove lamb from marinade and season with salt and pepper to taste. Grill the lamb until the thickest part registers 135 degrees F. for medium rare, turning occasionally, about 30 minutes. Transfer to a platter and tent with foil. Let stand 10 minutes.
Brush bread with some of the olive oil and grill, cut side down for until lightly golden brown, about 1 minute.
