Oregon State coach Craig Robinson met with athletic director Bob De Carolis on Thursday and was given every indication that he will return for a seventh season, multiple sources told CBSSports.com on Friday. Meantime, Robinson's agent, Rick Giles, told CBSSports.com that the two sides have never discussed a settlement, buyout or anything like that, and added that Robinson is "committed" to returning to Oregon State.

"Craig inherited an 0-18 team and has worked hard to recruit nationally, build a practice facility and change the culture at Oregon State," Giles said. "This year, he had Oregon State within two league wins of the NCAA Tournament. They've come a long way and are getting closer. He is fully committed to continuing this progress and taking the next step -- and to getting Oregon State into the NCAA tournament."

Robinson, the brother of First Lady Michelle Obama, led the Beavers to a 16-16 record this season that included an 8-10 record in the Pac-12. The Princeton graduate has three prospects signed from the Class of 2014, among them Gary Payton II. He's the son of Oregon State legend Gary Payton, a nine-time NBA All-Star and Hall of Famer.
