Craig Robinson, brother of First Lady Michelle Obama, fired as Men’s Basketball coach at Oregon State

Several factors can cause a college head basketball coach to lose his job.

A losing season record, overall losing record at the current school, second-half of game failures, losing games in the final moments, losing to your arch-rivals, most of all a half-filled arena and no enthusiasm from the student section.

All of those factors led Oregon State University to fire head coach Craig Robinson.

Robinson finished with a an overall record of 95-105 with the Beavers. He had one season above .500 at 21-15, two .500 seasons at 18-18 and 16-16, his first and last seasons respectively. And three below .500 seasons. His first team in 2008-2009,  went on to post a 5–1 record and captured its first post-season tournament championship ever with a final series victory over the UTEP Miners in the finals of the College Basketball Invitational. He would take the Beavers to the CBI Tournament four times. But the administration frowned on the fact that Oregon State never made it to the NCAA Tournament. His teams rarely beat their arch-rivals, the Oregon Ducks during his tenure.

The 52-year-old Robinson, who stands 6’6 inches tall,  is the older brother of United States First Lady Michelle Obama. He was a forward for Princeton University in the Ivy League from 1979-1983. Robinson was a two-time Ivy League forward and led the league in field goal percentage both years. He is the fourth highest scorer in school history. He played for the legendary Pete Carril.

Dick Kazmaier, a halfback, kicker and quarterback  from Princeton University who won the Heisman Trophy in 1951, died in Boston from heart and lung disease. He was 82.

He ended his career third all time in Princeton history with over 4000 yards of offense and 55 touchdowns. Also in 1951, he won All-American honors as well as the Maxwell Award.

Kazmaier had a career in the NFL waiting on him but he declined to play.

Kazmaier was drafted by the Chicago Bears in 1952, 15th round, 176th pick, but he decided to pursue a master’s degree in Business administration at Harvard.

Kazmaier graduated from Maumee High School near Toledo, Ohio, in 1948. He played football (four years), basketball (four years), track & field (four years), baseball (four years) and golf (one year) earning a letter each year in each sport. He was recruited by 23 colleges, most offering full scholarships.

He served as chairman of the President’s Council on Physical Fitness under President Ronald Reagan and President George H.W. Bush and was president of the National Football Foundation and Hall of Fame.

 

Gary Goff named new football coach at Tiffin University

The Tiffin University Dragons have settled on a new football coach.

Gary Goff  takes over the program from Dave Walkosky, who left following the 2010 season.

Goff comes to Tiffin after a high successful season at West Virginia Wesleyan. Goff, who served as offensive coordiantor and quarterbacks coach at Wesleyan, led the team from a 2-8 season in 2009 to a 9-2 mark in 2010, tying the most wins in school history in the process. The team was ranked nationally for the first time in school history while breaking 12 offensive school records.

Prior to West Virginia Wesleyan, Goff coached at Princeton University where he was Pass Game Coordinator and Receivers Coach. He was also Co-Offensive Coordinator and Receivers Coach at New Mexico State University for four seasons where he helped lead the team to a ranking of 2nd nationally in passing offense and 3rd nationally in total offense. That team also broke 21 offensive school records while ranking 15th in the nation in scoring offense. Goff also coached the nation’s top receiver, two-time All-American Chris Williams, who later signed with the Cleveland Browns.

Goff, who has been offensive coordinator for three different teams, also served in that job capacity at Iowa Wesleyan University. He also coached for two seasons at Southeastern Louisiana University, helping that squad to lead the nation in total offense.

Goff played for powerful NCAA Division II Valdosta State under Hal Mumme. Goff was a receiver/kick returner and was also team captain his senior year, leading the team to the Gulf South Conference Championship in 1996. That squad also earned an NCAA play-off berth and the nation’s top ranking during the regular season. He earned his degree in Business Administration.

A native of Picayune, Mississippi, Goff and his wife, Tiffanie, have two children, Tyler and Audrey.
