The Atlanta Falcons have announced have promoted wide receivers coach Terry Robiskie to the assistant head coach position.

Prior to coming to Atlanta, Robiskie served as the wide receivers coach for the Miami Dolphins. He was hired by the Falcons in 2008 to fill the same position, and he was instrumental in the development of Roddy White and now third-year receiver Julio Jones. Last season, Jones and White combined for a league-best 2,549 receiving yards on 171 catches. The duo also totaled 17 touchdowns.

Robiskie has been an NFL assistant for 31 years, including interim head coach stints with the Cleveland Browns in 2004 and the Washington Redskins in 2000.

The promotion is undoubtedly deserved for Robiskie.
