Former Iowa running back Adam Robinson transferred to NCAA Division II powerhouse Minnesota-Duluth last year, but is no longer in the UMD program.
The Bulldogs won the D-II national-title in 2008 and 2010.
Robinson spent the fall semester at UMD, sitting out the season with the intent to have two seasons of eligibility remaining. But, said UMD sports information director Bob Nygaard, “He left after the fall semester.”
A source told me that a UMD official (not Nygaard) said Robinson suffered a torn Achilles tendon in practice last fall. Andy Garman, sports director at KCCI-TV in Des Moines, said he had been told the same thing by Des Moines-native Robinson’s high school coach, and Robinson has been home in Des Moines since January because of the injury.
“The coaching staff wasn’t quite sure where he ended up,” Nygaard said.
Robinson had two productive seasons with the Hawkeyes, with a total of 1,775 rushing yards in two seasons. But he was suspended from the team two weeks before the 2010 Insight Bowl, and was dismissed from the team a few weeks later after Robinson had been arrested on a marijuana possession charge in Des Moines.
