Before coming to Charlottesville, Robbins was an assistant coach under UVa head coach Augie Busch at Houston for the 2012-13 season after serving as a volunteer assistant in 2011-12.

Prior to UH, served as both the head swim coach and aquatics program director at the River Oaks Country Club in Houston.

A 2007 graduate of Texas, Robbins was a four-year letter winner for the Longhorns. Robbins competed at the US National Championships three times while at Texas and helped the Longhorns to four consecutive Big 12 Championships.
