Jon Robinson

Special Teams Coordinator/Linebackers Coach

Phone (219) 464-6772

Jon Robinson has taken on a role as the linebackers coach and special teams coordinator at Valpo after holding those same positions at Wayne State University in Detroit since 2016. There he coached two all-conference players in 2016 and one in both 2017 and 2018 and was an instrumental part of a defense that ranked second in the GLIAC in 2016.

Robinson was a graduate assistant at Ball State University from 2014-2016, where he worked closely with the defensive and special teams coordinators. Prior to that, he held a graduate assistant video coordinator role at Wayne State from 2012-2014.

The owner of a bachelor’s in education and a master’s in sports administration, Robinson played defensive end at Wayne State from 2007-2011, when he was a three-time all-conference selection. He was a part of the winningest class in Wayne State history, a run that culminated by finishing as the 2011 national runner-up.
