Former Syracuse Orange head coach Greg Robinson died on Wednesday at the age of 70 after battling Alzheimer’s Disease, Robinson’s son told Syracuse.com.

Robinson had a long coaching career, which included time in both the NFL and college ranks. He is most known for his four-year stint as Syracuse’s coach from 2005-2008. Robinson took over for the previously highly-successful Paul Pasqualoni, but things went poorly for the Orange.

They went from having only one losing season in nearly 20 years to going 10-37 under Robinson, never faring better than 4-8 in a season under him.

In the NFL, Robinson served as a defensive coordinator for the New York Jets, Denver Broncos and Kansas City Chiefs. The Broncos won two Super Bowls during his tenure, which spanned from 1995-2000.

Robinson last coached in 2015 as a defensive coordinator/linebackers coach at San Jose State.
