Cowboys reassign Robinson to clear way for Dooley
The Cowboys made the hiring of Dooley official Monday and said Robinson would be a senior coaching consultant. Robinson also was the assistant head coach.
Dooley was fired at Tennessee in November after going 15-21 in three seasons. He was just 4-19 in the Southeastern Conference and 0-15 against Top 25 teams.
Cowboys coach Jason Garrett and Dooley were assistants together with the Miami Dolphins in 2005-06.
It's a return to the Dallas area for Dooley, the son of former Georgia coach Vince Dooley. He was an assistant at SMU from 1997-99.
Robinson was Dallas' receivers coach for two years and oversaw a breakout season for Dez Bryant in 2012.
