PEOPLE: Oregon State Coach Tom Robinson
Growing up, Craig Robinson was used to getting all the attention. A high-school basketball star, he made it from the hard-scrabble streets of South Chicago to Princeton University, where he twice was chosen Ivy League Player of the Year. He played professional basketball in Europe for a few years before getting his MBA and embarking on a high-flying career as a bond trader and investment banker. Throughout his life, he watched over (and overshadowed) his little sister, Michelle Robinson, who though successful in her own right, took a back-seat to her older brother.
That was until Michelle got married, and her husband, Barack Obama, became the 44th President of the United States.
Now, the tables have turned, and Michelle is the superstar of the Robinson family, and Craig couldn’t be happier for her. But he’s not resting on his laurels … he gave up a lucrative job in finance to follow his life-long love affair with basketball, and this year he signed on as head coach of the Oregon State University men’s basketball team. Both Michelle and Craig Robinson were raised to never back down from a challenge, and Craig now is trying to bring back a once-storied basketball program up from last place, where they bottomed out last year.
Correspondent Jim Axelrod talks with Craig Robinson about growing up with Michelle, and interviews their mother, Marian Robinson, about just what “magic dust” was sprinkled on their tiny, walk-up apartment in Chicago to produce two such remarkable people.
