Cory Robinson is now in his third season with the New Orleans Saints, serving as assistant defensive backs coach. Robinson, who possesses 13 years of coaching experience, works with Senior Defensive Assistant Peter Giunta in assisting Co-Defensive Coordinator/Secondary Coach Kris Richard in tutoring the Black and Gold cornerbacks and safeties.
In 2021, Robinson and the Saints defensive staff developed third round draft pick Paulson Adebo, who was the only Saints defender to open all 17 contests in 2021, while tying for the team lead with three interceptions, second among all National Football League rookies. Marshon Lattimore continued his improvement with a career-high 19 passes defensed, ranked third in the NFL, as he was selected to his third consecutive Pro Bowl, second under Robinson's steady guidance. New Orleans was tied for sixth in the NFL with 18 interceptions, with 16 of them coming from the secondary, with Adebo, C.J. Gardner-Johnson, Lattimore and P.J. Williams tied for the team lead with three apiece. In addition to New Orleans finishing fourth in the NFL in scoring defense (19.7 points per game) and seventh in total defense (318.2 net yards per game), the Saints gave up the third-fewest touchdown passes (20).
