Former Oregon State MBB Coach Craig Robinson Named NABC Executive Director

Former Oregon State men’s basketball head coach Craig Robinson will become the fifth Executive Director of the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC).

Robinson won’t take over until Sept. 2021, but he will work with current Executive Director Jim Haney. Haney, a former Oregon Ducks head coach, has led the NABC for 29 years.

Robinson has served as vice president of player personnel for the New York Knicks since 2017. He coached the Beavs from 2008-2014.

“Craig encompasses everything we were looking for and more in the next leader of the NABC,” said Jamie Dixon, 2020-21 NABC President and TCU head coach. “Craig’s experiences as a decorated student-athlete, an accomplished coach and a high-level administrator uniquely position him to lead our association during this crucial moment in time for basketball. Given his background, education and values, we have exceeded expectations from when we started the search.”

Along with Dixon, Robinson received praise from Duke’s Mike Krzyzewski, former Cal and current Missouri coach Cuonzo Martin, and University of Chicago’s Mike McGrath.
