2004 The Carolina assistant has told :00 the University that he is staying in
Chapel Hill instead of returning to the
head coaching ranks with UR.

Robinson was courted heavily by
the Spiders, and several sources told
us that the job was his for the taking.

Family may have been the
determining factor. He and his wife
have a 10th grader, 8th grader and a
6th grader, who have made two major
cross country moves in the past three
years.
