Report: Former Pitt G James Robinson to Join Delaware Staff as Assistant



According to Pete Thamel of ESPN, former Pitt guard James Robinson is expected to join the Delaware basketball staff as an assistant coach.

Prior to his time with the Panthers, Robinson starred at DeMatha Catholic High School, establishing himself as a big name in the DMV hoops scene and a top-50 recruit in the 2012 class. A 6-foot-3 guard, he then played four seasons for Pitt from 2012-2016. In his time in Oakland, Robinson started 135 of his 136 career games, averaging 8.2 points and 4.4 assists per game in his Panther career. His best season came as a senior, in which he posted 10.2 points and five assists per game.

Since then, Robinson has spent time playing in Germany, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and more countries overseas. In seven of his eight professional seasons, Robinson averaged more than nine points per game. He recently wrapped up his playing career playing with KK Igokea, a team that competed in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Delaware is entering year seven of the Martin Ingelsby era. The Blue Hens finished last season with a 22-13 record, making the NCAA Tournament as a 15 seed and falling in the first round.

Congratulations. Harkens back to when we were a top flight program, recruiting Dematha players. Now we recruit guys who go to 10 high schools and are a laughingstock in the league
