Oregon State fired men's basketball coach Craig Robinson on Sunday night, according to a report from Sports Illustrated.

The development comes six weeks after OSU's final game.

That makes the timing of this decision highly unusual and curious.

Robinson, best known for being the brother-in-law of President Barack Obama, spent six seasons at Oregon State, where he went 93-104 without ever making the NCAA Tournament. He had three years left on his contract. Oregon State still reportedly owes him more than $4 million. Evidence that the decision is a surprise is rooted in the facts that Robinson and his staff were out recruiting as recently as last week, and that Maryland transfer Nick Faust committed to the Beavers just five days ago.
