NASHVILLE, Tenn. —Falcons coach Dan Quinn doesn't know Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota personally.

But he's very familiar with new Titans offensive coordinator Terry Robiskie, who served as wide receivers coach in Atlanta under Quinn last season.

Quinn predicted the coach and quarterback will hit it off in Tennessee, where Robiskie was hired to call plays under head coach Mike Mularkey.

"I know Terry will find a way to connect with Marcus,'' Quinn said from the NFL owners meetings. "I know that because Terry does that now with all the players, with all the coaches, with really anybody he is around.

"I couldn't imagine him not connecting with Marcus in a big way, and being really good for him. Marcus is going to like him."

Robiskie joined the Titans after spending the past eight seasons as wide receivers coach with the Falcons. Robiskie has 34 years of coaching experience in the NFL, including six seasons as an offensive coordinator.

Robiskie worked under Mularkey when he served as offensive coordinator in Atlanta, and he also worked with him in Miami.

Quinn said the Titans got a tough-minded coach in Robiskie, and he believes it will show on offense in Tennessee.

"No.1, one of the things I've been most impressed with over the years about Terry is I've always felt like his units, man did they compete,'' Quinn said of Robiskie. "That goes for his time in Atlanta (with me), but I've also watched Terry for a long time. All the units that he's coached, there was toughness, there was competitiveness, and that jumped off the tape. And you don't always see that at the receiver position with every team. But I did with his group and his unit.

"If there was a unit Terry had, it was going to be tough, and (coaching receivers), that was a smaller one. Now that he has a bigger unit to work with as offensive coordinator, I bet the toughness with jump out at you.''
