The Washington Huskies have fired men’s basketball head coach Lorenzo Romar. He was informed of the decision on Wednesday.
He was the head coach of the Huskies for the past 15-years. He has not made it to the NCAA Tournament since 2011.
Washington went to three straight NCAA March Madness Tournaments from 2009 to 2011.
They finished 9-22 this season, including 2-16 within the PAC-12 Conference. Despite having the potential No. 1 overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft in Markelle Fultz, they could not win.
Romar was 298-196 during his tenure in Washington, where he had been employed since the 2002-03 season.
Prior to arriving as the Huskies head coach, he was the Pepperdine Waves and the St. Louis Billikens head coach. He spent three-years each at these schools, where he had 93-88 combined record.
The 9-22 record was his worst coaching season since his rookie campaign with Pepperdine when they went 6-21 during the 1996-97 season.
