We know
who we are.
Others see who

  Les Robinson
  B.S., N.C. State University;
  M.A., Western Carolina University

As one who knows college athletics from the inside out, Les Robinson can draw on his experience as a college player, coach and athletic director to assist the many people who call him weekly for advice.  Les is the only person in NCAA history to serve as a coach and athletic director at three Division I institutions: The Citadel, North Carolina State University and East Tennessee State University.

Because of his extensive knowledge of the issues and people involved with college athletics, he was selected to serve for six years on the prestigious NCAA Basketball Committee.

He has been named Coach of the Year twice in South Carolina as well as in Tennessee and North Carolina. Les has served as athletic director at North Carolina State University as well as The Citadel.

His understanding of the unique relationship between college administrations and their athletic programs gives him a valuable perspective on the issues and challenges involved in the education of college athletes.
