Coyle arrived in January last year from Burnley and kept the club in the top flight when they were favourites to be relegated.
This season they have kicked on under the Glasgow-born boss and lie eighth in the table, winning plaudits for their easy-on-the-eye style of play.
Robinson said: "Owen Coyle has brought a togetherness back. He has made the players confident in their own ability.
"It has shown throughout the season because you can see how far we have come. We have all stuck together.
"We are in a good moment. It has been a great season so far. We have to keep going, that's the trick."
