(WXYZ) — Former Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson is coming back to Ann Arbor to join Jim Harbaugh's staff. Robinson will serve as the assistant director of player personnel.
“Denard is an energetic guy who always has a smile on his face,” said Harbaugh. “He will be a positive addition to our program in both the player personnel and player development areas. Denard has been an active member of this campus and we know he will bring that same enthusiasm and love for Michigan to our building every day. We are excited to have Denard back home at Michigan helping our team.”
Robinson, 31, played quarterback at Michigan from 2009-2012 and appeared in 47 games for the Wolverines. He holds the single-season record for total offensive yards in a season with 4,272 in 2010. He played four seasons for the Jacksonville Jaguars after college.
“I am so excited about coming back to Michigan,” said Robinson. “This place means a great deal to me and I look forward to interacting with past, present and future Wolverines in my new role. Coach Harbaugh and I have been talking for almost a year about returning to help the program, and to have it finally come together is a dream come true and fulfills one of my career goals. I love this University and can’t wait to get to work.”
In 2019, Robinson was hired as an offensive analyst special teams assistant at Jacksonville University. He then joined the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2020.
