Report: Robiskie hired as Titans offensive coordinator

The Tennessee Titans have hired former Falcons wide receivers coach Terry Robiskie as their offensive coordinator on Monday, according to Paul Kuharsky of

Titans coach Mike Mularkey would not confirm that Robiskie was hired during his introductory press conference. He said they were in the process of interviewing three candidates and that Tennessee’s former offensive coordinator Jason Michael would be the quarterbacks coach.

Robiskie worked closely with Tennessee coach Mike Mularkey, when he was the Falcons offensive coordinator from 2008 to 2011. Mularkey often gave Robiskie credit for some of his play calls and in-game adjustments during his tenure with the Falcons.

Robiskie, 61, who played at LSU and in the NFL, is a long-time and highly respected coach. Despite his long track record of success he’s been passed over for head coaching jobs. He served as the Falcons assistant head coach during 2013 and 2014.

He’s helped develop wide receivers Roddy White and Julio Jones with the Falcons.

In 2013, with White and Jones injured, Robiskie coaxed a 1,000-yard receiving season out of Harry Douglas, who led the Falcons in receptions (85) and receiving yards (1,067) with two touchdowns. Douglas now plays for Tennessee.

Robiskie has stints as offensive coordinator and interim head coach on two occasions during his time in the NFL.

Robiskie has also coached with Miami, Cleveland, Washington and with the Los Angeles Raiders, where the team made seven playoff appearances, won four division titles and defeated the Washington Redskins in Super Bowl XVIII during Robiskie’s tenure.
