Fred Allen "Rabbi" Robins (December 17, 1890 – ?) was an American football and baseball coach at both Mercer and Mississippi. He served as the head football coach at Mercer University in 1914 prior to accepting the head coaching position with the University of Mississippi in May 1915.[2] While at Mississippi, Robbins compiled a record of 5–12.[3] He played for coach Dan McGugin's Vanderbilt teams. His skills better suited to the mud, he played quarterback and led the team to its largest win in its history, a 105 to 0 win over Bethel in 1912.[4]
