The New York Knicks have reportedly hired former Oregon State basketball coach Craig Robinson, the brother of former first lady Michelle Obama, to a front office position.

Robinson, 55, will have a role handling player development and take on the responsibilities of the Knicks' G-League team in Westchester.

That combination of coaching and front office experience is consistent with what NY has been searching for this offseason.

Here's what Robinson is expected to do with the Knicks.

The New York Knicks are hoping to restore order in Madison Square Garden, in a seemingly never-ending quest to make the Knicks great, or just relevant, again. He also was a head coach a Brown and was an assistant at Northwestern.

Although Mills has not been team president for long, he is quickly making a break from the Jackson era, which lasted three years. Between 1979 and 1983, Robinson achieved a decorated career, winning the Ivy League Player of the Year award on two separate occasions.
