The nationwide unemployment rate continues to improve but unfortunately not for President Obama’s brother-in-law!
Craig Robinson got FIRED from his head coaching job at Oregon State University today after six seasons with the Beavers’ basketball team!
Michelle Obama’s older bro took the job at Oregon State back in 2008, the same year Barack won the White House!
But he went 94-105 during his head coaching tenure and failed to ever get his team into the NCAA tournament. There’s no sign the Beavers will be better anytime soon either - they went 16-16 last season and all five starters are not returning next year!
Even with that subpar record, releasing Robinson comes as a bit of a surprise, since he has three years left on his contract and school administration seemed to be backing him.
Oregon State will now owe him more than $4 million just to get rid of him early!
We wonder if ANYONE can coach the Beavers to a stellar season? They haven’t made the tournament in 24 years and haven’t won a tourney game since 1982!
Maybe they can hire Barack and his bball skillz in 2016???
