Denard Robinson is officially back at Michigan on Jim Harbaugh’s staff as the assistant director of player personnel. UM announced the hire Thursday, releasing statements from Harbaugh and Robinson.

Robinson was a college scouting assistant with the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2021. At Michigan, he will work closely with Director of Player Personnel Tom Gamble and Director of Recruiting Operations Albert Karschnia.

“Denard is an energetic guy who always has a smile on his face,” Harbaugh said in a release. “He will be a positive addition to our program in both the player personnel and player development areas. Denard has been an active member of this campus and we know he will bring that same enthusiasm and love for Michigan to our building every day. We are excited to have Denard back home at Michigan helping our team.”

Robinson played quarterback at Michigan from 2009-to-2012. In the Wolverine record books, Robinson is No. 1 for career total offense (10,769 yards) and touchdowns scored (91). Robinson went on to play in the NFL, being selected in the fifth round by the Jaguars in 2013. He played 4 seasons in Jacksonville.

“I am so excited about coming back to Michigan,” Robinson said via UM. “This place means a great deal to me and I look forward to interacting with past, present and future Wolverines in my new role. Coach Harbaugh and I have been talking for almost a year about returning to help the program, and to have it finally come together is a dream come true and fulfills one of my career goals. I love this University and can’t wait to get to work.”
