The brother-in-law of US President Barack Obama has reportedly been fired from his position of coach of the men's basketball team at the Oregon State University.

Robinson, who had three years remaining on his contract, failed to lead his team to the NCAA tournament or even the NIT in his tenure.

According to ABC News, thanking Robinson and his family for their contributions to the university, their athletic director Bob De Carolis however, stated that the decision was taken in the best interests of their student-athletes, basketball program and the university.

Robinson will receive a buyout of four million dollars, which is ten times Obama's salary of 400,000 dollars, the report added.
