MATT ROBINSON DEPARTING JAGUARS
WILL CONTINUE AS RADIO COLOR ANALYST
Jacksonville Jaguars broadcaster Matt Robinson will be leaving the organization as a full-time employee, though he will continue in his role as color analyst for the team's radio broadcasts. Robinson joined the Jaguars in 1995 and has been host and co-host of Jaguars television and radio programming through the team's first six seasons.
Robinson has accepted a position as vice president of business development for Summit Contractors in Jacksonville. In his new job he will be involved in promoting new business, managing current business, and marketing.
"I feel blessed to have the opportunity to re-enter the Jacksonville business community with such a reputable and successful company as Summit Contractors," Robinson said. "The Jaguars have been a great home for me over the last six years, and I look forward to the future as the team's radio color analyst, doing what I love to do… Talk about football."
Robinson played six seasons in the NFL as a quarterback for the New York Jets, Denver Broncos and Buffalo Bills. A graduate of the University of Georgia, he came to Jacksonville in 1984 as quarterback of the USFL Jacksonville Bulls. Robinson retired from football in 1986 and remained in Jacksonville with several business interests in the area.
"We will maintain continuity in our game broadcasts with Matt and Brian Sexton, so our fans will continue receiving the excellent game descriptions they have grown used to hearing on the radio," said Dan Edwards, executive director of communications and broadcasting for the team. "We wish Matt great success with his new responsibilities."
