SEATTLE (AP) — Washington coach Lorenzo Romar says he’s had no contact from UCLA regarding the Bruins’ head coaching position.
Romar was asked about the UCLA job Monday during his season-ending news conference. Romar said it’s understandable his name gets brought up with the UCLA vacancy.
Romar is a Southern California native who worked as an assistant at UCLA from 1992-96, including the Bruins’ 1995 national championship season.
But Romar said, “I’ve said I don’t know how many times, Washington wants me and I want to be here.”
Romar just completed his 11th season as Washington’s head coach.
Romar added that reserve forward Martin Breunig will transfer from the school and junior guard C.J. Wilcox has submitted paperwork to the NBA draft advisory committee to evaluate his draft prospects if he left early.
