Terry Robiskie Promoted to the Title of Assistant Head Coach For Falcons

USA TODAY Sports

On Saturday, it was learned that former Cleveland Browns head coach Eric Mangini was returning to the NFL. Today, there was some news about another former Browns head coach...well, interim head coach, that is. The Atlanta Falcons announced that Terry Robiskie is being promoted from their receivers coach to the assistant head coach to Mike Smith.

Robiskie joined Butch Davis' staff in Cleveland back in 2001 as the team's receivers coach, a title he held until 2004, when he was promoted to being the team's offensive coordinator. When Davis had his breakdown mid-way through the season, Robiskie took over as the interim head coach, compiling a 1-4 record to finish the season. When Romeo Crennel was brought on as the team's head coach in 2005, Robiskie stayed on as the receivers coach again for two years.

In 2008, Robiskie joined the Falcons, where he has worked with high caliber receivers in Roddy White and Julio Jones, arguably one of the best tandems in the NFL. Why the title change for Robiskie in Atlanta? Our friends at The Falcoholic astutely point out the reason:

Highly respected for his work, Robiskie was eventually going to get a crack at an offensive coordinator job elsewhere, at minimum. The Falcons have taken a step to ensure he won't be poached by another team by promoting him to assistant head coach.

Congrats on the promotion, Terry! Now then, I think there is a son of his who could use a couple more pointers on how to make a career in the NFL at receiver.
