Robinson was in his second run at Maryland. In 2015, he was the team’s director of player personnel. Before his return to College Park, Robinson served as the cornerbacks coach at Rutgers.
Per his profile on Maryland football’s website, Robinson also held the cornerbacks coach position at Temple and Toledo between his time at Maryland and Rutgers.
Maryland’s pass defense ranked last in the B1G last season and 116th nationally, surrendering over 270 yards per game through the air. The Terrapins finished the season 3-9.
