Robison died early Friday, university spokesman Chris Cook said.
Robison coached Texas Tech from 1942 to 1961 and was its athletic director from 1961 to 1969.
As a coach, he had a career record of 248-195, the second-most wins in school history. His teams won three consecutive Border Conference titles. Five years after entering the Southwest Conference, the Red Raiders won the league championship.
``It was a monumental milestone in making Texas Tech a major college athletic force to be reckoned with,'' Walt Huffman, dean of Texas Tech University's law school and Robison's son-in-law, told the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal.
Funeral arrangements were pending Saturday.
