EDDIE ROBINSON DEAD AT THE AGE OF 88!

A LEGEND IS NOW GONE!

The former legendary head football coach of Grambling State University, Eddie Robinson, has died. He was recently battling Alzheimer’s disease. As head coach of Grambling, Robinson won more than 400 games over a 50+ year career. No further details on his death are available at this time. Despite being a Southernite, The Insite had several chances to meet Coach Rob in the past. He also grew up in my hometown of Baton Rouge, La and attended the same high school (McKinley Senior High) I did. There is also a street named after him in the Red Stick. I’d see him each year at the Bayou Classic in some form or another. He will be greatly missed!
