BRISTOL, Conn. (AP) — Craig Robinson, the former Oregon State coach and President Barack Obama’s brother-in-law, is joining ESPN as a college basketball analyst.

The network said Tuesday that Robinson will call games and work in the studio for college sports channel ESPNU.

Robinson was fired in May after going 94-105 in six seasons with the Beavers. A former Princeton star, he started his college head coaching career at Brown. The 52-year-old Robinson is the older brother of First Lady Michelle Obama.

ESPN says that former Arkansas and South Florida coach Stan Heath will also join ESPNU as a game and studio analyst.
