Tommy 'Jo Jo' Green was the starting point guard for Syracuse for one season (1971) and a three year letterman. Green was a true playmaker, rarely taking shots, while setting up plays for his teammates. He was a great student of the game.

Green averaged 14.0 points a game on the freshman time, helping guiding that squad to a 15-1 record. He also shot 80% from the free throw line that season.

After graduation Green went into coaching. After a brief stint at Drew University, Green became an assistant coach at Syracuse for four years (73-76) under Roy Danforth. Green was part of the staff during the successful 1975 run to the Final Four. In 1976 he left SU to follow Danforth down to Tulane University, where Green remained an assistant until 1982.

In 1983, Green became the head coach at Fairleigh Dickinson College. He has coached there for 26 seasons, with a record of 407-351, a record for school wins. He also was 263-189 in the Northeast Conference, making him the winningnest coach in conference history. The Knights appeared in four NCAA tournaments under Green, along with two NIT tournaments.

Green would be named the head basketball coach of the City College of New York in August 2011.
