Tommie Robinson knows football and he knows running backs. Coach Robinson is currently the Arizona Cardinals running backs coach and he brings his vast knowledge and expertise to FBU.
Prior to coming to the Cardinals, Robinson was in the collegiate ranks coaching running backs at the University of Miami (Fla.), Memphis and Oklahoma State, where he coached future NFL back Tatum Bell. He also spent four years coaching wide receivers and tight ends at Georgia Tech under head coach Chan Gailey.
