Robiskie, who has 35 previous years of coaching experience in the NFL, including seven seasons as an offensive coordinator, joined the Titans after spending the previous eight seasons as wide receivers coach with the Falcons.
In his first season at the helm for the Titans, the offense saw significant improvement in a number of categories while second-year quarterback Marcus Mariota posted one of the best seasons in franchise history. The offense ranked 11th in total offense, which was the highest ranking since 2004, third in rushing offense, first in red zone offense, third in third-down offense, seventh in sacks allowed (32nd in 2015). Mariota posted a franchise-best eight consecutive games with multiple touchdown passes. He also recorded the third-highest passer rating in club history and his 26 passing touchdowns were fourth best. Mariota also garnered AFC Offensive Player of the Month honors for November, posting a 115.0 passer rating for the month. Running back DeMarco Murray was the leading rusher (1,287) in the AFC and third in the NFL. Three offensive players also earned Pro Bowl honors – Murray, tackle Taylor Lewan and tight end Delanie Walker.
Under Robiskie’s guidance in 2015, Falcons receiver Julio Jones set a franchise record for receiving yards in a season (1,871). Robiskie also played a huge role in the development of receiver Roddy White, who is the franchise leader in receptions (808), receiving yards (10,863), and touchdowns (63). In 2012, Jones and White had the highest receiving totals as a duo in the NFL, as they combined for 171 receptions for 2,549 yards and 17 touchdowns. Robiskie helped guide White and Jones to a total of seven Pro Bowls – three for Jones (2012, ’14, ’15) and four for White (2008, ’09, ’10, ’11). Titans receiver Harry Douglas had a 1,000-yard season with the Falcons under Robiskie’s guidance in 2013.
