Former Georgia State defensive lineman Travian Robertson has been named Georgia State’s defensive line coach, head coach Shawn Elliott announced Tuesday.
Robertson, who served as a graduate assistant on the Panthers’ 2017 staff, spent one season as the defensive line coach at Albany State. The Rams went 7-4 and won the SIAC East title.
With Robertson on staff, Georgia State’s defense set school records that year for fewest points allowed per game, fewest rushing yards allowed per game (136.4) and fewest yards per rushing attempt (4.13) as well as most sacks in a game (seven) and season (24.0).
Roberston was a seventh round draft pick by the Falcons in 2012 out of South Carolina, where he played under Elliott and earned SEC All-Academic honors and served as team captain in 2011.
He played four NFL seasons with the Falcons, Seahawks and Redskins.
