CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) -Craig Robinson, who coached the past two seasons at Brown and gained attention as Barack Obama's brother-in-law, was selected Monday as the new men's basketball coach at Oregon State.
The Beavers went 6-25 this season, becoming the first team to go winless in the Pac-10's regular season since the league expanded from eight teams in 1978. Oregon State has had one winning season since 1990. The Beavers fired coach Jay John on Jan. 21, and assistant Kevin Mouton was interim coach the rest of the season.
Robinson was 30-28 in two seasons at Brown. The Bears went 19-10 this season and finished second to Cornell in the Ivy League.
Robinson was an assistant at Northwestern for six seasons under Bill Carmody before taking over at Brown. He is the brother of Michelle Obama, wife of the Democratic presidential contender.
Robinson played at Princeton from 1980-83, twice helping the Tigers to an NCAA tournament berth.
