KANSAS CITY, Mo., Jan. 13 (UPI) -- Coach Dick Vermeil did not cry tears of joy in Kansas City Tuesday as his defensive coordiator departed.
"At first it stunned me," said a teary-eyed Vermeil after accepting Robinson's resignation. "It's tough to say goodbye to Greg. I love the guy. I'm going to miss him."
But Robinson had no answers for Manning and the Colts' offense Sunday. Indianapolis scored touchdowns on its first three possessions in the first half and a field goal and two more touchdowns on its first three possessions in the second half.
The Colts totaled 434 yards and 27 first downs.
"I have decided to take a left turn and I think it's the right thing for this organization," said Robinson, who has served as the Chiefs defensive coordinator for the last three seasons.
Robinson, 51, was the defensive coordinator of the Denver Broncos for six years, including the back-to-back Super Bowl winning teams in 1997 and 1998, before joining Vermeil's staff in 2001.
