Former USC football coach John Robinson will assist the school's athletic development staff in outreach efforts throughout Orange County and San Diego, USC announced Thursday.

"We're excited to have John back among the Trojan family," Athletic Director Pat Haden said.  "He has always been a popular figure with our fans and we know he will be well received as he works with our donors in the Orange County and San Diego areas."

Robinson had two stints as the Trojans' head coach, from 1976 to 1982 and from 1993 to 1997. He guided USC to the 1978 national title and compiled a record of 104-35-4.

Robinson coached the NFL's Los Angeles Rams from 1983 to 1991 and was head coach at Nevada Las Vegas from 1999 to 2004.
