Stew Robinson, a former assistant coach at Texas Tech and Morehead State, has been named to the same post at UIC pending Board of Trustees approval, head men's basketball coach Howard Moore announced Monday.

"We're very fortunate to add a veteran coach like Stew Robinson to our staff," said Moore. "He brings a world of experience as both a coach and player under Bob Knight and he will be able to relate that experience to our players. Stew is really going to help us in recruiting, specifically getting into areas like Indiana and Texas. His ability to coach on the court is invaluable, and we're excited to welcome Stew to our basketball family at UIC."

Robinson spent the past eight seasons as an assistant with the Red Raiders under head coaches Bob Knight and Pat Knight. Tech advanced to three NCAA Tournaments (2003-05, 2004-05 and 2006-07) with Robinson on staff, and won 19 or more games four times.

"What's most appealing about this opportunity is the challenge," said Robinson. "We are all in this business to teach young men to better themselves not only on the court, but off the court, as well. Coach Moore comes from a great background, specifically with his experience under Bo Ryan at Wisconsin. UIC was very fortunate to land Howard Moore as its head coach, and I can't wait to work with him. We go about our business the same way."

Robinson was a standout guard at Indiana (1982-86) under Bob Knight, helping the Hoosiers advance to three NCAA Tournaments, including two "Sweet 16" berths. He was also a member of Indiana's 1982-83 Big Ten Conference championship team. During his career, Robinson scored 630 points and dished out 391 assists.
