Robinson was the quarterback at Michigan from 2009-12, getting plenty of national attention for his dynamic dual-threat abilities. Over his four-year career in Ann Arbor, Robinson threw for 6,250 yards and 49 touchdowns and also rushed for 4,495 yards and 42 touchdowns.
Robinson was selected in the fifth round of the 2013 NFL Draft by the Jacksonville Jaguars. He spent four seasons with the Jaguars, primarily used as a running back and wide receiver throughout his career.
In 2019 and 2020, Robinson has been involved with the coaching side of football. He spent one season at Jacksonville University (FCS) as an offensive analyst and was a quality control coach for the Jaguars in 2020.
Last year, Robinson worked as a college scout in Jacksonville’s front office.
