NEW ORLEANS, LA -- The New Orleans Saints coaches series continues with a simple look on assistant defensive backs coach Cory Robinson.
Currently, Robinson is in his second season with the New Orleans Saints and his first season as an assistant defensive backs coach, after serving as a defensive assistant in the 2020 season.
In this position, Robinson will supplant Saints' defensive backs coach Kris Richard. Richard, a former cornerback in his playing days, will serve his first year as defensive backs coach after spending the last three seasons as Dallas Cowboys defensive coordinator.
Robinson possesses 11 years of coaching experience, which is mainly dealing with defensive backs. Before being signed by the Saints, Robinson spent time as a defensive passing game coordinator and defensive backs coach at Maryland University in 2019. Four years prior, the Baltimore, Md. native was also the director of player personnel in the same place.
The Central Connecticut alumni started his coaching career as a director of football operations, recruiting coordinator, and an assistant varsity coach at Calvert High school in his hometown, from 2009 to 2013. Then he moved to another high school, St. Frances Academy HS, in 2014, serving as assistant head coach and defensive coordinator.
Robinson's college coaching career started at Toledo University in 2016 when he started as a cornerbacks' coach. A year later, he coached Temple Owls and molded their pass defense to lead the American Athletic Conference. He then moved to Rutgers University in 2018. There, he coached cornerbacks while also serving as a passing game coordinator.
Robinson's experience will help Saints' secondary corps, led by veterans Malcolm Jenkins and Marshon Lattimore, in 2021, as they face tough offensive teams like Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Tennessee Titans.
