Jon Robinson got a promotion tonight. He has been named Executive Vice President in addition to General Manager. This is well deserved after the improvements Robinson made to the Titans roster in just one offseason.
Here is what Titans controlling owner Amy Adams-Strunk had to say about the promotion (from Wyatt’s article):
“Jon has done great work since his arrival to our organization and this is a way to recognize that fact,” said Titans Controlling Owner Amy Adams Strunk. “His leadership and football acumen helped change our culture and improve our team. He and Mike (Mularkey) deserve a great deal of credit for our turnaround this year and I am hopeful that will continue this coming year and into the future. This is an acknowledgement of his work and it puts him on equal footing with others in the league who direct football operations.”
Here is what Robinson had to say about it:
“Amy called me today to talk about this promotion and I was truly humbled and grateful,” said Robinson. “This organization means the world to me and I am working on a daily basis to make it better. I don’t stand alone in this task of improving our team – from ownership, Mike and the coaches, the players who have bought in to our program, scouts and staff. We all have worked together to create a family and hopefully a culture of long-term success.”
Robinson did a great job in free agency, signing Ben Jones and Rishard Matthews, in trades, acquired DeMarco Murray and moved up in the draft to get Jack Conklin, and in the draft with Conklin, Derrick Henry, and Kevin Byard.
