Greg Robinson, who served as co-defensive coordinator on Texas’ team that defeated Michigan in the Rose Bowl after the 2004 season, is returning to the Longhorns.
UT announced Wednesday that Robinson will be a football analyst in the recently formed player personnel department. According to a release, Robinson “will handle control evaluation for the team, provide team video review, oversee the Longhorns’ self-scouting and provide assistance in opponent scouting.”
Robinson, a 36-year coaching veteran, described the decision to return to Texas as “a no-brainer.”
“The coach in me says I want to be on the field, but this position was something that excited me from the moment Mack (head coach Brown) and I talked because it’s a chance to help the program,” he said in a statement.”
Robinson, defensive coordinator of the Denver Broncos during their back-to-back Super Bowl title runs in 1997 and 1998, served as co-coordinator at Texas along with secondary coach Duane Akina in 2004. He was head coach at Syracuse from 2005-08 and last coached in 2009-10 as the defensive coordinator at Michigan.
