Marie Robbins, an Associate Athletics Director since 1996 and Senior Woman Administrator since 2001 at The University of Alabama, wears many hats for the Crimson Tide. In addition to an array of administrative duties, she has oversight duties with women's basketball, gymnastics, softball, volleyball and the men and women's track and field programs.
As a former University of Alabama gymnast, Robbins led the Crimson Tide to a Southeastern Conference and NCAA title in 1988 and another SEC title in 1990. She earned four All-America honors, an SEC all-around title and three Academic All-SEC accolades and a Southeastern Conference Postgraduate scholarship.
After her competitive career, she enrolled in The University of Alabama School of Law in the fall of 1990. While in law school, Marie stayed in touch with athletics, working as a graduate assistant with CASS (Center for Athletic Student Services). After law school, Robbins accepted an internship with the SEC office, working with championships.
After her first year with the SEC office she moved into the compliance section. At that time, the SEC was taking over the national letter of intent program and Robbins was tapped to run the program.
In September of 1996, Robbins returned to the Capstone, joining Alabama's senior staff as Associate Athletics Director for Compliance.
In addition to her work with the University, she serves on the NCAA Volleyball Committee, beginning a two-year stint as the committee's chair this fall. She was also a member of the NCAA Women's Gymnastics Committee, chairing the committee in 2000-02.
