Tommie Robinson returns as running backs coach

first_imgHead football coach Clay Helton has had a penchant for hiring former assistants for his new staff, and Tuesday the trend continued as the Trojans announced the addition of Tommie Robinson as running backs coach.Robinson served as running backs coach and passing game coordinator for USC in 2013 under head coach Lane Kiffin but was not retained after Steve Sarkisian was hired.The 52-year-old has plenty of experience at the collegiate and NFL levels — 30 years in all — and he spent the last two seasons as the running backs coach for the Texas Longhorns.“We are thrilled to welcome back Tommie Robinson to the Trojan Family,” Helton said.  “He is one of the most respected running back coaches in our profession.  He has had an extensive career in both the NFL and college and he will pass on that knowledge to our young running back group.”Helton also worked with Robinson at Memphis, where they were both assistants in 2006.“I have had the good fortune to work with Tommie on two different occasions, at USC and at Memphis, and have seen firsthand how he develops young men both on and off the field,” Helton said. “He is a true professional and a terrific recruiter.”During the 2013 season at USC, Robinson guided the Trojans’ offense to 29 rushing touchdowns, its most in eight years.After starting his career as a graduate assistant at Arkansas, Robinson spent time at Utah State, TCU, and UNLV. Then came a three-year stint in the NFL with the Dallas Cowboys where he served as a wide receivers and special teams assistant. Prior to his first stint at USC, Robinson was the running backs coach for the Arizona Cardinals from 2010-2012.Robinson’s career has also seen stops at Memphis, Georgia Tech, Oklahoma State and Miami.Last season, the Longhorns averaged 5.67 yards per carry under Robinson, who will look to get the best out of several running backs the Trojans plan to feature, including Ronald Jones II and Justin Davis.Robinson joins Clancy Pendergast (defensive coordinator), Tee Martin (offensive coordinator), John Baxter (special teams coordinator and tight ends coach) and Helton as former assistants under Kiffin who will be on Helton’s staff in 2016. Pendergast and Baxter were brought in while Martin was promoted from wide receivers coach.Robinson’s hire means that Johnny Nansen, who was the running backs coach the last two seasons at USC, will shift to linebackers coach and recruiting coordinator. Nansen was retained by Helton after coming over with Sarkisian from Washington.last_img read more

Clemens remains uncertain

first_imgKISSIMMEE, Fla. – On his first day at Houston Astros camp, Roger Clemens threw pitches and hit grounders to his son, Koby. That’s about all the baseball he feels like playing right now. He said Thursday he feels “very good” and “strong,” but knows that the older he gets, the harder it will be to get himself prepared for another season. “At one point, it’s not going to work out,” he said. “These are the questions I have to ask myself, that’s why I push myself so hard to find out before I get to that moment.” Clemens said he’ll wait until his agents, Alan and Randy Hendricks, get an offer he can’t refuse before he amps up his workout regimen. And even then, he might have doubts. “I don’t know what’s going to happen two months from now,” Clemens said. “I could get into the middle of a training session and know that I just can’t do it. That would be the easiest call for me to make.” Koby Clemens, a third baseman starting his second full season in the Astros’ minor league system, said his father told him last week he was “80-20” leaning toward not coming back. Then again, after the 2003 season Clemens said there was a 99 percent chance he would retire. “It’s a pretty serious number right now,” said Koby, the oldest of Clemens’ four sons. “I go, `Dad, right now, on the spot, if they asked you are you coming back or not, what are your percentages now?’ He said, `80-20.’ I go, `Coming back or sitting out the year?’ And he goes, `Probably sitting out the year.’ That was it.” On Thursday, Clemens wore a black Astros cap, black Astros T-shirt and white pants. But he said that doesn’t mean he’s favoring them over the Yankees or Red Sox. The fact that his son plays in the Astros’ farm system doesn’t give them an edge, he said. “He’s concentrating on what he needs to do,” Clemens said. “He doesn’t really care either way. That was the first time he really asked me, the other day in the gym.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! If he comes back, the 44-year-old said he’ll choose between his hometown Astros, the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox. Clemens said he’s not “milking” his decision in search of the highest bidder. He also said he’ll have no problem walking away when the time comes. “It’s 10 times harder to make the decision to come back and try to do it again,” he said. “I love what I do and I have high expectations to perform. When I don’t, it’s disappointing.” Clemens is on an easier workout regimen now than he was when he arrived at spring training last year to prepare for the World Baseball Classic. center_img The seven-time Cy Young Award winner is no closer to deciding whether he’ll play a 24th major league season. “Everybody knows where I stand. I don’t care to play, but if that decision comes up again, then it’s a big decision on me,” Clemens said Thursday. “It has nothing to do with anybody else. It’s a decision on me to go out and perform.” last_img
