Cowboys Hire Packers Receivers Coach Jimmy Robinson

As Jason Garrett completes his staff, he seems to have landed a big piece today in former Packers receivers coach Jimmy Robinson. Ray Sherman had a tight bond with his receivers, so with young stars in Miles Austin and Dez Bryant who need their development finished off and a veteran in Roy Williams who needs something, an experienced, competent coach was needed. Garrett picked Robinson, with whom he spent three years with the Giants, while Robinson coached receivers there. 

Robinson joined the Packers the same year Greg Jennings was drafted, and he's seen Jennings become one of the biggest threats in the NFL. He's had James Jones since Jones' rookie season, and he's spent the last three years trying to develop Jordy Nelson into Donald Driver's successor. His resume of students is quite impressive, as Nick Eatman details:

And those [Packers] are just the latest of a star-studded list of receivers Robinson has coached in his 21 years of NFL experience. Throw in guys like Andre Rison, Marvin Harrison, Joe Horn, Amani Tommer and Donte Stallworth. Robinson was also the first NFL coach to closely work with Deion Sanders, trying to get him equipped to play both sides of the ball. Obviously, Sanders was able to start for the Cowboys at receiver in 1996.

Now he'll bring his new Super Bowl ring to Dallas and see if he can keep Bryant awake during meetings.
