Cal men’s basketball alumnus Theo Robertson will rejoin the Golden State Warriors in a player development role and fill the vacancy left by former assistant coach Willie Green, as first reported by the Athletic’s Anthony Slater.

Robertson worked as an assistant coach for Cal under former head coach Wyking Jones, but he departed from the program only a few games into the 2017-18 season.

Prior to returning to his alma mater, Robertson worked for the Warriors, first as a video intern during the 2014-15 season then as a video coordinator/player development staff member during the 2015-16 season. Robertson also worked with the Los Angeles Lakers as an assistant coach in the 2016-17 season and the Detroit Pistons as an assistant video coordinator last season.

Robertson, a two-year captain, played for Cal from 2006 to 2010 and finished his four-year career as the program’s all-time top 3-point shooter by percentage, knocking down 44.0 percent of his shots from downtown. Additionally, Robertson ranks 10th in three-pointers made (154) and 19th in points scored (1,315) on Cal’s all-time leaderboard.

Robertson was an invaluable part of the Bears’ 2010 Pac-10 championship team, averaging 14.2 points, 4.7 rebounds and 2.3 assists while shooting 45.3 percent from three en route to being named team MVP. Robertson would be named second-team All-Pac-10 and All-Tournament in 2010 as well.
