According to a Monday morning report from Shams Charania of Yahoo!

The Knicks are overhauling their front office after Phil Jackson left the team.

The Milwaukee Bucks front office executive has risen his way through the National Basketball Association ranks, but is perhaps best known for his relation to Obama: Robinson is the brother-in-law to the ex-President.

Robinson's title with the Knicks is not yet disclosed.

Robinson, 55, will have a role handling player development and take on the responsibilities of the Knicks' G-League team in Westchester.

According to Charania, Robinson's job will be multi-faceted, taking on various different responsibilities in NY.

Following his stop at Brown, Robinson went to Oregon State University where he racked up 93 wins from 2008-2014, the 4th winningest coach in program history. Robinson has coaching and executive experience on the college and professional levels.
