Mississippi Valley State has announced that Elvis Robinson will take over the women's basketball program as head coach. It will mark the first head coach position for the former Alcorn State and Jackson State assistant.
Robinson is a 2004 graduate of MVSU.
"We did a thorough search and Robinson presented himself as a top candidate," said MVSU interim director of athletics Donald Sims. "We have faith that he will keep the program going in the right direction."
Robinson, who was most recently an assistant at JSU, played for the Delta Devils from 2000-04 and was a member of the 2003-04 regular season SWAC championship squad.
He went on to become a graduate assistant for the Alcorn State women's basketball team from 2004-06. The Lady Braves won the 2004-05 SWAC championship. He then served as an assistant coach at Alcorn from 2006-08 before heading to Jackson State in 2008. At JSU, he served in multiple capacities including assistant coach, assistant head coach and interim head coach.
Robinson, a 1999 graduate of Callaway High School, earned his master's of secondary education from Alcorn State in 2007.
