Florida State Director of Athletics Dave Hart announced on Monday that the university and head basketball coach Steve Robinson have agreed on a mutual termination agreement that ends his tenure at FSU after five seasons.
Robinson had a 64-86 record over five years at FSU and a 110-104 career record, including his two years as head coach at Tulsa. The Seminoles were 12-17 this season and finished in a tie for seventh in the ACC. Robinson led FSU to the second round of the NCAA Tournament in 1998, his first season with the Seminoles, posting an 18-14 record for the year.
Robinson was an assistant coach at Kansas from 1989-1995 before his two-year stint at Tulsa. He was also an assistant at Radford (1984-86) and Cornell (1987-88).
A national search for his replacement will begin immediately.
