Oregon State Fires Obama’s Brother-In-Law Basketball Coach

According to an announcement made by Oregon State has fired its men's basketball coach, Craig Robinson, also known as the brother-in-law to President Barack Obama.  "I want to thank Coach Robinson and his family for their contributions to Oregon State University," said athletic director Bob De Carolis. "This was a difficult decision, but after further evaluation, I believe it is in the best interests of our student-athletes, our basketball program and our University." In Robinson's six year at Oregon he had a 93-104 record with no NCAA championship. Also interesting enough, Robinson has three years left on his contract and now the school is expected to owe him $4 million. Aside from the fact that he is the brother of our First Lady, he's an excellent basketball coach. We except to see him again on the sidelines soon. Your Jersey Girlfriend, Marcelle English
