Craig Robinson fired by Oregon State!

Will Nick Fuast still go there?

from ESPN:

Oregon State has fired Craig Robinson, the coach confirmed to ESPN.com on Monday.

Robinson, the brother-in-law of President Barack Obama, had three years remaining on his contract. He was 94-105 in six seasons in Corvallis, making him the fourth-winningest coach in school history.

The Beavers, however, failed to make the NCAA tournament or even the NIT in his tenure.

Robinson will receive a buyout of $4 million -- or 10 times Obama's salary of $400,000.

The news was earlier reported by SI.com.

Athletic director Bob De Carolis had issued a letter on March 28 saying, "I'm looking forward to watching Coach Robinson continue to build our program. ... I ask for your continued support of Beaver basketball."

Oregon State was 16-16 (8-10 Pac-12) this past season, and the program was set to lose its top five scorers.

The top three -- Roberto Nelson, Devon Collier and Angus Brandt -- all graduated. Eric Moreland declared early for the NBA draft, and Hallice Cooke decided to transfer. Starting point guard Challe Barton, who hails from Sweden, decided to play overseas instead of returning to the program.

Robinson went to Oregon State from Brown, where he was 30-28 in two seasons.
