Followed closely by "staff continuity."


Tommie Robinson resigned his position Thursday to take a spot on the coaching staff of the Arizona Cardinals, sources told CaneSport.

Robinson just completed his third year at Miami and will be making his second stop in the NFL.


From 1998-2000, he served as an offensive assistant with the NFL's Dallas Cowboys, working with wide receivers and special teams. While in Dallas, he worked with such noted NFL greats as Deion Sanders, Emmitt Smith and former Hurricane Michael Irvin. He also previously served internships with the New Orleans Saints, St. Louis Rams, Dallas Cowboys and Miami Dolphins.

Robinson brought a wealth of experience to Miami and had a deep group of backs last season led by Graig Cooper, Javarris James, Damien Berry and Lee Chambers.

He came to Miami from the University of Memphis, where he stopped for a year following a four-year stint as an assistant at Georgia Tech (2002-05), where he coached under Chan Gailey, for whom he played at Troy State and worked under as an assistant coach with the Dallas Cowboys. At Georgia Tech, Robinson coached wide receivers for one season before becoming the tight ends coach.

Prior to his time in Dallas, Robinson spent three months at UNLV in 1998, four seasons at TCU (1994-97) and two years at Utah State (1992-93) as a full-time assistant. While he was at TCU, he worked with LaDainian Tomlinson, the All-Pro running back for the San Diego Chargers. Robinson began his coaching career as a graduate assistant at Arkansas.
