Oregon State fired men’s basketball coach Craig Robinson on Sunday night, a source confirmed to CBSSports.com on Monday.
The development, first reported by SI.com, comes six weeks after OSU’s final game.
That makes the timing of this decision highly unusual and curious.
Robinson, best known for being the brother-in-law of President Barack Obama, spent six seasons at Oregon State, where he went 93-104 without making an NCAA Tournament. He had three years left on his contract. OSU still reportedly owes him more than $4 million.
