Robinson began his coaching career in 1975 as an assistant at Pacific. He was the coordinator on Denver's Super Bowl winning teams in the 1997 and `98 seasons and an assistant on four Rose Bowl winning teams with UCLA and Texas.

He spent the past two seasons on coach Ron Caragher's staff at San Jose State.
