While he wasn’t a Michigan football assistant for long, he donned the maize and blue for a time. And unfortunately, he’s gone too soon.

Greg Robinson was Rich Rodriguez’s second defensive coordinator, after Scott Shafer departed after his first year overseeing the defense. Robinson was maligned as the leader of the defense, but he had a storied history of being a defensive coordinator, from coaching the Super Bowl-winning Denver Broncos, to being a two-time DC with the Texas Longhorns, to being the head coach at Syracuse.

Unfortunately, per Adam Schefter via Pat Kirwan, Robinson passed away on Wednesday morning at the age of 70.

Robinson has long been out of coaching, with his last job being the defensive coordinator at San Jose State in 2014-15, a position he took after his two years in Ann Arbor and his return to Texas for one year.
