Greg Robinson

Greg Robinson (born October 9, 1951 in Los Angeles, California) is an American football defensive coordinator for Michigan. He was previously the head coach of the Syracuse University Orange football team from 2005 until 2008. Robinson also served as the co-defensive coordinator at the University of Texas during the 2004 season. Prior to his role at Texas, he was defensive coordinator for three teams in the National Football League: the Kansas City Chiefs under Dick Vermeil, the Denver Broncos under Mike Shanahan, where his team won two Super Bowl championships in 1997 and 1998, and the New York Jets under Pete Carroll.

Robinson was hired as head coach of the Orange in January 2005 after the firing of head coach Paul Pasqualoni, who had been Syracuse's head coach since 1991. On November 17, 2008, with the Orange reeling from its third double-digit losing season under Robinson, the only double-digit losing seasons in program history, it was announced that he would be fired from his coaching duties at the end of the season. He finished his tenure with a 10–37 record overall, and a 3–25 record in the Big East.

Robinson graduated from Garces Memorial High School in Bakersfield, California; then attended and played at Bakersfield College, a junior college, before transferring to the University of Pacific. Following his hiring Robinson was praised by the Syracuse community for his public speaking abilities and likable personality. He attributed this success to his "hard work and dedication" at Harvey Mudd College where he obtained a M.A. in Oratory Arts.
