Stew Robinson, a former standout guard at Indiana and most recently an assistant basketball coach at Morehead State University in Morehead, Kentucky, begins his first season as an assistant coach for the Texas Tech Red Raiders.
A steady influence on the court, Robinson played from 1982-1986 for Coach Bob Knight. At IU, he was a three-year starter and a two-time season assist leader. Robinson's career highlights include playing on the 1982-83 team which won the Big 10 Championship, playing in three NCAA Tournaments, and advancing to the NCAA's "Sweet 16" twice. He completed his degree requirements in 1993. His 630 career points ranks 70th on the all-time IU scoring list.
After serving as an assistant at Plattsburgh State for one season, Stew accepted a position on the staff of the Morehead State Eagles. At 20-9 last season, the Eagles were co-champs of the Ohio Valley Conference and registered their second 20-win mark in their history.
"I'm very excited to get the opportunity to re-unite with Coach Knight, to be part of the Texas Tech staff, and to being in the Lubbock community. I played for Coach during the 1982-86 seasons and have great admiration for him as a person and as a coach," commented Stew Robinson as he was preparing to move his family to Lubbock.
A native of Anderson, Indiana, Stew was an all-state basketball player at Madison Heights High School. He is married to the former Tracy Baxter of Bloomington. They have two sons, Isaia (5 years), Mekhi (1 year), and a daughter, Amani (7 weeks). Robinson also has daughter, Sara (17 years).
