Jackson native Elvis Robinson is the new women’s basketball coach at Mississippi Valley State, the school announced today.
Robinson, a 1999 Callaway High School graduate, is a 2004 MVSU graduate. He played four years for the Delta Devils’ men’s team and has spent the last eight years as an assistant coach at various levels, most recently at Jackson State.
Robinson replaces Nate Kilbert, who left to take the women’s coaching position at Arkansas-Pine Bluff.
“We did a thorough search and Robinson presented himself as a top candidate,” said MVSU interim athletic director Donald Sims in a statement released by the school. “We have faith that he will keep the program going in the right direction.”
