The University of Washington today released this statement from head coach Lorenzo Romar, reacting to assistant Cameron Dollar today assuming the head job at Seattle University.
"Cameron has a presence that commands respect. After having played and coached from coast to coast, his basketball network is extremely extensive for a young coach. His rapport with players and recruits is a valuable asset to a coaching staff. He also has the uncanny ability to believe. He's the type of guy that all you have to do is tell him he can't, and it'll probably get done."
UW also released these comments from Dollar:
"University of Washington basketball will always hold a special place in my heart. I want to thank all the players, coaches, administrators and fans who made my experience as a Husky such a great time in my life. I will really miss the daily interaction with everyone at the UW. Coach Romar has always been like a father to me. I hope to show my gratitude by how I run my program.
"Seattle University is an outstanding academic institution that is laying a strong foundation to return its basketball program to national prominence. It's a great challenge—and an exciting opportunity."
