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.
