PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) -Brown University didn't look far for its new men's basketball coach.
The Ivy League school said Monday it has selected assistant coach Jesse Agel to replace Craig Robinson, who left after two seasons to take the coaching job at Oregon State. Robinson is Barack Obama's brother-in-law.
Agel was Robinson's assistant for two years. Before coming to Brown, the 46-year-old Agel was an assistant at Vermont for 17 years.
Brown won a school-record 19 games last season, finishing second in the Ivy League and earning a bid to the inaugural College Basketball Invitational.
