Brown introduces Agel as new men's basketball coach
PROVIDENCE (AP) - Brown University didn't look far for its new men's basketball coach.
The Ivy League school announced Monday that it has selected assistant coach Jesse Agel to replace Craig Robinson, the brother-in-law of Barack Obama who left after two seasons to take the head-coaching job at Oregon State.
Agel was Robinson's assistant for two years. Before coming to Brown, the 46-year-old was an assistant at Vermont for 17 years.
Agel says his goal is to win Ivy League championships, which the school hasn't done in more than 20 years.
Brown won a school-record 19 games last season, finishing second in the Ivy League and earning a bid to the inaugural College Basketball Invitational.
