Mantoris Robinson Named Assistant Coach for Utah State Men's Basketball

Utah State head men's basketball coach Jerrod Calhoun announced on Wednesday the hiring of Mantoris (Man-tore-is) Robinson as an assistant coach.

Robinson brings 12 years of experience as a college coach to the Aggie bench, most recently serving as an assistant on Calhoun’s staff at Youngstown State for the past two seasons.

“Mantoris was part of my original staff at Fairmont State as a graduate assistant and has worked with some excellent coaches along his journey,” Calhoun said. “He did a tremendous job for us at Youngstown State, and he will be one of our lead catalysts for our defense working with Eric Haut.”

During his tenure at Youngstown State, Robinson helped guide the Penguins to the first back-to-back 20-win seasons in their Division I history as the team went a combined 46-20 (.697) with a 29-11 (.725) record in Horizon League play. YSU won 24 games in 2022-23, tied for the most wins in program history, then posted a 22-win season in 2023-24. YSU also posted a 28-6 (.824) home record during Robinson’s two years on staff.

“This is an unbelievable opportunity and I’m thrilled to continue to work with coach Calhoun and this staff,” Robinson said. “Coach Calhoun gave me my first opportunity in this profession, so from day one, I have been shown the blueprint of what hard work, empowerment, and winning looks like. I don’t take for granted the unique blend of team and family he is bringing to Utah State and the Logan community.”
