Romar is a Southern California native with long-standing recruiting ties to the West Coast. Though he was fired from UW in March, the level of recruiting he maintained throughout his tenure makes him an invaluable asset for Arizona. Prior to Washington, Romar was the head coach for three years each at Saint Louis and Pepperdine.
In 15 years at Washington, Romar coached 13 NBA draft picks. That includes Markelle Fultz, a one-and-done on this past year’s team that may go first overall in the 2017 NBA Draft.
