This allows Robinson to return to his faculty role as director of UD’s Sport Management Program and his “primary responsibility” as self-appointed CEO of the Creek Road Runners. “My thanks to…Matt Robinson for steering us through this time of change in Athletics,” Assanis said. “His deep knowledge of athletics issues and his personal leadership were invaluable to the department and to the University.”

In a locker room interview yesterday, Robinson said he was happy for the opportunity to have served as interim AD but is eager to get back to working out on Creek Road.
