New OSU coach reportedly hired — and it’s not Ken Bone

John Canzano of the Oregonian is reporting tonight that Oregon State is set to hire Craig Robinson of Brown as its new head coach. Here’s more from the Beavers Beat blog.
Robinson has almost been better known as late for being the brother-in-law of Barack Obama.
The Corvallis Gazette-Times also has this report on the apparent hire.
Brown finished 19-10 this season and was invited to the CBI, where it lost in the first round to Ohio University.
Here’s a bio on Robinson. And here’s his Wikipedia entry which has some links to other stories about him. As you can see, he’s only been a head coach for two years.
This is definitely an off-the-radar hire as I never saw Brown’s name mentioned once in any of the stories I read on this.
But maybe this is the kind of outside-the-box hire the Beavers need to revive their program (while acknowledging that Robinson was likely at least the third choice after Randy Bennett and Bill Grier).
And too bad for Ken Bone, the former UW assistant now at Portland State who seemed like he would have been a perfect fit for this job. Bone’s best revenge now will be continuing the resurgence at PSU, where his team next year could be as good, or better, than this year with former Husky Phil Nelson becoming eligible.
