Greg Robinson, who helped the Denver Broncos win back-to-back Super Bowls in the 1990s, has died at age 70 after a battle with Alzheimer’s disease, the team confirmed Wednesday.

“We’re saddened by the passing of former Broncos defensive coordinator Greg Robinson,” the team wrote on their Twitter page.

Robinson served as the Broncos’ defensive coordinator from 1995-2000, winning Super Bowl XXXII in 1997 and Super Bowl XXXIII in 1998. He went on to spend three seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs before coaching college football from 2004-2015, with a break in 2011.

Robinson served as Syracuse’s head coach from 2005-2008 before resuming assistant duties in the college ranks. He most recently coached at San Jose State as defensive coordinator/linebackers coach from 2014-2015. Robinson retired from coaching following Spartans’ bowl game in 2015.

While coaching in Denver, Robinson led a defense that allowed the fifth-fewest points in 1997 and the eighth-fewest points in 1998, helping the Broncos win back-to-back Super Bowls. Robinson later won the Rose Bowl as Texas’ co-defensive coordinator in 2004.
