Calvin Robinson joined the LA Tech Family beginning with the 2013 track and field season as an assistant coach and was promoted to associate coach beginning with the 2015 season.

That promotion was well-earned after coaching his athletes to nine All-America honors in his first two years at the school including coaching Trey Hadnot to four of his six career All-America honors, a number that tied a school record.

 “I am very excited to be a part of Louisiana Tech track and field Family, I cannot thank Coach Stanley enough for this opportunity,” Robinson said upon his hiring. “Louisiana Tech is a program with great history and tradition and I look forward to adding a few pages to that during my time here.”

Adding to the history is exactly what Robinson did in his first year on staff as he coached sprinter Trey Hadnot to a third place finish in the 200m at the NCAA Indoor Championships in 2013 with a school record time of 20.48. Entering his senior year, Hadnot had already claimed the 10 fastest times in the indoor 200m in school history.

Robinson joined the Louisiana Tech Family after spending a little over four years as an associate head coach at the University of Miami (Fla.) where he guided a high jumper to the 2012 London Olympics.

Prior to his time at Miami (Fla.), Robinson spent four years as an assistant coach at UTEP where he sent a women’s long jumper and men’s high jumper to the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, was named the 2008 U.S. Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) Mountain Region Women’s Assistant Coach of the Year and coached the 2008 national champion in the men’s high jump.

Robinson was also an assistant coach at Sam Houston State from 2000-04 where he coached the school’s first All-American in track and field.

In all, Robinson brings a resume that boasts 20 All-Americans and 52 various all-conference honors .

He is a 2000 graduate of Sam Houston State with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in kinesiology and earned his Master’s of Arts degree in kinesiology from Sam Houston State in 2004.
