Craig Robinson
The Associated Press

CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) — Oregon State has fired Craig Robinson after six seasons without making the NCAA tournament.

The brother-in-law of President Barack Obama, Robinson had a solid start in Corvallis, taking a program that had lost 21 straight Pac-12 games to an 18-win season in 2008-09.

The Beavers' results under Robinson were uneven after that, finishing no better than fifth in the Pac-12 in his six seasons.

Oregon State won 21 games in 2011-12, but went 7-11 in conference to miss the NCAA tournament.

After going 14-18 in 2012-13, the Beavers were 16-16 this season, including 8-10 in the Pac-12, and lost to Radford at home in the CBI.

Robinson went 94-105 with Oregon State after spending two seasons as Brown's head coach.
