Meet Zac Robinson: Three things to know about the Rams' assistant quarterbacks coach

Quarterback Jared Goff will operate under a new quarterbacks coach in former tight ends coach/pass game coordinator Shane Waldron for the fourth-straight season since he was drafted No. 1 overall in the 2016 NFL Draft.

Joining Waldron in leading the quarterbacks room in 2019 will be first-year NFL coach Zac Robinson.

1. Experience with Superstar Receivers

Goff will have his pick of two 1,000-yard receivers to target in 2019 in wide receivers Brandin Cooks and Robert Woods, who each reached the mark in 2018.

Robinson's days as a quarterback at Oklahoma State also featured a 1,000-yard sophomore receiver, in future All-Pro Dez Bryant. Robinson threw 25 touchdowns as a junior at OSU — 19 of which landed in the hands of Bryant.

Much like defensive tackle Aaron Donald, who is getting a position coach in Eric Henderson with experience working with superstars, Goff is getting a quarterbacks coach with in-game experience targeting a top-tier receiver.

2. Former Analyst

Robinson was most recently a member of the football media, serving as an analysts for Pro Football Focus, after spending time largely as a practice squad quarterback for the Patriots, Lions, Seahawks, and Bengals.
