This looks like a sad day for the Obama family.

Sports Illustrated is reporting that Oregon State has fired basketball coach Craig Robinson, the brother-in-law of first lady Michelle Obama.

During his tenure, President Obama and his family attended his brother-in-law's games when Oregon State played in the Washington, D.C., area and Hawaii.

During six years at Oregon State, Robinson had a record of 93-104, and never made the NCAA tournament.

Sports Illustrated reports that the timing of Robinson's dismissal is a bit of a surprise:

"Oregon State's season ended six weeks ago with a loss to Radford. ... Robinson had reportedly received support from Oregon State's administration. Robinson has three more years remaining on this contract and the university is expected to owe him more than $4 million."
