Robinson a reboot or retread for Texas defense?

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Texas coach Mack Brown has turned to friend and former assistant Greg Robinson to reboot his defense and save the Longhorns’ season.

Robinson last coached at Texas (1-1) in 2004, when the Longhorns went 11-1 and won the Rose Bowl. He parlayed his only season at Texas into the head coaching job at Syracuse, where he was 10-37 in four years.

From there, it was two years as Michigan’s defensive coordinator, where the Wolverines ranked near the bottom nationally in total defense.

None of that dissuaded Brown from calling on Robinson to rescue a season that started with so much promise.
