Robiskie gets a promotion

The Falcons announced that wide receivers coach Terry Robiskie will be adding assistant head coach to his current title.

Robiskie was among the first hires by Mike Smith back in 2008. Prior to joining the Falcons, Robiskie had spent roughly three decades patrolling NFL sidelines, getting his first gig as an assistant special teams coach in 1982 with the then Los Angeles Raiders. That came on the heels of a five-year playing career with the Raiders and Miami Dolphins as a running back and fullback.

Robiskie has spent time both as an offensive coordinator, most recently with the Cleveland Browns in 2004. He also served as an interim head coach twice in his career, compiling a 2-6 record. His first stint came in 2000 with the Washington Redskins after the dismissal of Norv Turner, which was followed up in Cleveland after Butch Davis was axed in 2004.
