Texas Longhorns | Manny Diaz: Fired as Defensive Coordinator by Mack Brown
By Randy Maltz – Founder/Editor Silver and Blue Report & Hook ’em Report

Greg Robinson, Texas Longhorns, Mack BrownGreg Robinson is the defensive coordinator for the Texas Longhorns at the University of Texas at Austin. Previously, he was the defensive coordinator for Michigan, and the head coach of the Syracuse 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 their fourth straight losing season under Robinson, and their 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 finished up with the worst record in the history of the program.

Off work in 2012 Robinson served as an assistant coach to Saint Francis High School (La Cañada Flintridge). Saint Francis is coached by Jim Bonds who was a quarterback at UCLA when Robinson was an assistant coach.

In 2012, Athlon Sports named Robinson as the sixth worst college football head coach of the last 50 years.

In 2013, Robinson took over the Defensive Coordinator position at Texas when Defensive Coordinator Manny Diaz was fired after Texas was upset by Brigham Young 40-21 in Week 2.
