CORVALLIS — Oregon State men’s basketball head coach Craig Robinson has received a one-year contract extension that takes him through the 2016-17 season. The extension was announced Thursday by Bob De Carolis, OSU director of athletics.
Robinson has won 64 games in his first four seasons at Oregon State — more than legendary coaches Slats Gill and Ralph Miller recorded in their first four seasons at OSU — and is coming off the Beavers’ first 20-win season and just their second winning campaign since 1989-90.
Robinson took over a program that went 0-18 in conference play during the 2007-08 season and has led it to three postseason appearances, including the College Basketball Invitational (CBI) championship in 2009.
Oregon State went 21-15 last season, led the Pac-12 in scoring for the first time ever with a school-record 78.9 points per game, and pulled off an 86-84 upset of No. 1 seed Washington in the Pac-12 tournament.
