LSU assistant head coach, running backs coach and recruiting coordinator Tommie Robinson will not be leaving for the Cleveland Browns and will instead remain with the team next season, according to SEC Country.
Robinson reportedly interviewed for the running backs coaching job with the Cleveland Browns last week, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.
The Browns instead hired Freddie Kitchens for the position, along with offensive coordinator Todd Haley and special teams coordinator Amos Jones on Wednesday.
Robinson joined the Tigers’ staff last offseason after previously working at USC, where he was named the 2016 Pac-12 Recruiter of the Year and had worked with LSU head coach Ed Orgeron during his first stint with the Trojans.
LSU ranked fifth among SEC teams with 207.6 rushing yards per game and a 5.16 yards per carry average during the assistant’s lone season in Baton Rogue.
Robinson also worked as a running backs coach at Texas (2014-15), the Arizona Cardinals (2010-12), Miami (2007-09), Memphis (2006), Oregon State (2001) and UNLV (1998), as well as a tight ends coach at Georgia Tech (2002-05).
LSU is already facing several offensive changes this offseason, including replacing coordinator Matt Canada, starting quarterback Danny Etling and running backs Derrius Guice and Darrel Williams.
