Packers lose WR coach

The first defection from the Super Bowl Champion Green Bay Packers coaching staff has occurred.  Jimmy Robinson, wide receivers coach, has signed on with Cowboys.

Robinson, 57, had been the Packers’ receivers coach since 2006. He will be assistant head coach/wide receivers with the Cowboys for their new coach, Jason Garrett.

Robinson’s ties with Garrett go back to the New York Giants from 2000 through ’03, when Robinson was their receivers coach and Garrett their backup quarterback.

The Cowboys will be Robinson’s sixth NFL team. He’s worked with receivers all of his 21 seasons as an NFL coach.
