D’Tanyian Jacquez Green (born January 15, 1976 in Fort Valley, Georgia) is a former American football player in the National Football League who was officially listed as a wide receiver, but was also a prolific punt returner for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Washington Redskins and the Detroit Lions.

College career

Green was a three-year letterman at the University of Florida and member of the 1996 National Championship team, where he had seven catches for 79 yards in the championship game. He was a first-team All-America selection by the Associated Press and the Walter Camp Football Foundation in 1997 and was one of three finalists for the Biletnikoff Award (with Randy Moss and Troy Edwards). The consensus All-SEC choice caught 61 passes for 1,024 yards and nine touchdowns that junior season before entering the NFL Draft. In 1997 against Auburn, he scored a rare triple — throwing a touchdown pass, catching one and running for one. Green suffered a major hip injury in the Florida-Nebraska 1995 national championship game. He may best be remembered for a long reception from quarterback Doug Johnson very late in the 1997 Florida-Florida State game that propelled the underdog Gators over the Seminoles.

Professional career

Green's most productive seasons as a wide receiver was in 1999, when he caught 56 passes for 791 yards with three touchdowns (only ten starts), and 2000, when he had 51 receptions for 773 yards. He ended his NFL career starting 37 of the 66 games he played, registering 162 receptions for 2,311 yards and seven touchdowns. Green was a second round draft choice (34th choice overall) of the Buccaneers in the 1998 NFL Draft. Prior to the 2002 season, he signed as a free agent with the Redskins and re-united with former Florida Gators and Buccaneer teammate Reidel Anthony. He was released and signed by the Detroit Lions. Prior to the 2003 season, he signed with his former team, the Buccaneers and retired following the 2002 season.

After football

Green is also an avid video game player, he won the annual Madden Bowl twice. After serving as the offensive coordinator for Gibbs High School in St. Petersburg, Florida for two successful seasons, Green is now coaching in middle Georgia.
