Oregon State fired men's basketball coach Craig Robinson, most famous for being President Barack Obama's brother-in-law.

Citing sources close to the matter, The Oregonian reported Monday that Robinson had three more years left in his contract. The university is expected to owe him around $4 million, the sources said.

The move comes five weeks after Robinson had an end-of-season meeting with the school's athletic director Bob De Carolis to discuss his future with the team.

He was just 93-104 in six seasons at Oregon State, and the Beavers failed to go to the NCAA tournament or NIT in his tenure.
