New receivers coach Jimmy Robinson, who was introduced along with the rest of the new-look staff on Thursday at Valley Ranch, likes the look of the receiving corps he’ll take over in 2011, a group that includes Miles Austin, Roy Williams and Dez Bryant.
Robinson spent the past five seasons as receivers coach for the Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers, overseeing the work of such players as Donald Driver, Greg Jennings and Jordy Nelson.
As a member of the Cowboys’ staff, though, he is particularly excited to help in the development of Bryant--who, he believes, can be a special player in the NFL. In a rookie season cut short by four games due to injury, Bryant caught 45 passes for 561 yards and six touchdowns receiving. In addition, he returned two punts for touchdowns.
“He’s a guy I think that as time goes by can show he can do it all,” Robinson said, per ESPN Dallas. “It’s my job to help him do that. It’s going to be a gradual process but again I’m anxious for the opportunity.”
