In his current role, Robinson assists in several "behind-the-scenes" duties for the Memphis program, among them organizing the team's community outreach projects, contacting and updating former Tiger players about the program, overseeing the set-up of the team's daily post-practice meals and performing other daily operations.

As the graduate head manager the past two seasons (2007-08, 2008-09), Robinson was in charge of the program's managers and also set up daily practices, prepared the locker room and bench area for games, compiled statistics during practices and games and participated in staff meetings.

In his two years as graduate head manager, Robinson was a member of Tiger teams that posted a combined 71-6 record, won consecutive Conference USA regular season and tournament titles and earned back-to-back NCAA Tournament berths. The 2007-08 squad advanced to the NCAA Tournament title game, and the 2008-09 team made it to the NCAA Tournament Sweet 16.

Last year, Memphis posted a 33-4 overall record and put together a school-record 27-game win streak. The Tigers also swept the Conference USA regular season and tournament titles for a fourth-straight season, and posted a perfect 16-0 league regular season record for a third-consecutive season in 2008-09.

In his first season as graduate head manager in 2007-08, Robinson was a member of the Tiger staff during the most memorable season in school history. Memphis won an NCAA record 38 games (38-2 record) and advanced to the NCAA Tournament championship game. The Tigers swept the Conference USA regular season and tournament titles and won the NCAA South Region crown en route to the NCAA Tournament final.

As the Tigers' head manager from 2004-07, Robinson was a part of another successful run in school history. The Tigers won 88 games from 2004-05 through 2006-07, including 33 victories in 2005-06 and 2006-07. Memphis captured consecutive Conference USA regular season and tournament titles and advanced to the NCAA Tournament Elite Eight those two seasons. The 2004-05 squad played in the C-USA Tournament title game and advanced to the NIT final four.

In the summer of 2007, Robinson worked as a camp instructor at IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla.

The Danville, Ind., native played and also served as a student assistant coach at Crichton College from 2001-04. During his time there, Crichton was the 2002-03 Mid-East Regional champion and placed sixth in the national tournament.
