Robinson fits mold AD was looking for

Associated Press
SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- Greg Robinson, co-defensive coordinator for the Texas Longhorns, will succeed Paul Pasqualoni as head coach of the Syracuse Orange, a newspaper reported Monday.

According to the Web site of The Dallas Morning News, which cited two sources close to the Texas program, Robinson was offered the job Monday and accepted after interviewing with new Syracuse athletic director Daryl Gross in Los Angeles on Friday.

Attempts to reach Gross for comment were unsuccessful. Syracuse University spokesman Kevin Morrow said he was unaware of any impending announcement by the school.

Robinson 53, fits the mold of the coach Gross said he was seeking -- defensive-minded with NFL experience and the intention of staying put. Robinson said when he arrived at Texas last year his ultimate goal was to become a college head coach and that he didn't want to return to the NFL.

Robinson spent 14 seasons in the NFL, including stints as defensive coordinator with the Kansas City Chiefs and Denver Broncos, where he won Super Bowl rings in 1997 and 1998.

Gross, a former associate athletic director at USC, received a strong recommendation to hire Robinson from USC head football coach Pete Carroll.

Carroll, who recommended Robinson to Texas coach Mack Brown last year, played and coached with Robinson at Pacific and also coached with Robinson at North Carolina State from 1980-81 and the New York Jets from 1990-94.

Gross joined the USC staff in 1991 after working with the Jets as a scout for three years, so the two crossed paths briefly in the pro ranks.

Pasqualoni was fired Dec. 29 after 14 years.

Telephone messages left for Robinson and Brownby The Associated Press were not immediately returned Monday night.

An excellent hire. Just because a coach gets fired in the NFL doesn't mean he doesn't understand how to coach. Look at Pete Carrol or Bilichick at NE. Everyone thought these guys were no good also . But you see , when you add great talent to good coaching your going to win. The NFL is not exactly the best place to determine if a coach is good or bad because acquiring talent is part of the equation in what people call GOOD COACHING and those powers are usually not in the hands of the coach.

We CRUCIFY the guy but he wasn't responsible for the BAD high school defensive players.

If USC is not successful, its purely on the coaches shoulders. Same with Miami, Florida, Florida State, Oklahoma, and Texas. They are in the hottest recruiting beds in the country, they get all the best athletes, and they can live off name alone.

Good post.

Greg Robinson was quite successful with the UCLA Bruins in the mid-80's. He was also quite successful with the Broncos. And again, he was pretty successful this year with the Longhorns.

What do all those teams have in common, that KC doesn't have?

TALENT.

Every team, in every sport, goes through cycles.

UCLA won 3 Rose Bowls when he was there. They've been to 2 since and lost both.

He won 2 Super Bowls at Denver, they haven't won a playoff game since.

And Texas just played in their 1st BCS bowl.

I vaguely recall an article about the Longhorns this offseason that said Robinson had better talent in Texas than he had in KC (as compared to the level of competition) and everyone laughed. The writer was dead on.

The problem was Robinson had total control of the defense. Least in Denver, Shanahan made sure Robinson didn't do anything too crazy.

I bet he had more say than you give him credit for. Vermeil admits he has very little input on the defensive side of the ball, who else does that leave? I know Carl always has the final say, but he wouldn't be making decisions with no input from his coaching staff.

Yes... he firmly believes that. I read an article from a Texas newspaper a few months back where he went on about that, he firmly believes even with all the things he's accomplished, his last year in KC was his best coaching job. Peyton Manning was just too much for him to handle. I don't think I ever posted that article here though... it was almost sickening to read. From the fact that we couldn't even force one singular punt to the fact that we knew Manning would do the hurry-up junk and G-Rob didn't even seem to bother making sure we made our substitutions quickly to avoid having 12 men on the field (which cost us the 3rd down stop we would've had after Dante's TD return)... I don't think that was very good coaching at all.

I'm at peace with it now. SU's corners are so bad that they should be dropping tackles back into pass coverage.
Can it really get any worse than giving up 51 points twice on national t.v. and losing to Temple? If it does then I'm off to follow curling.
