Look who joined Twitter … Lorenzo Romar

Washington coach Lorenzo Romar, who admittedly has been adverse to social media, has joined Twitter. You can follow him @CoachRomar.
Romar has used Twitter in the past to monitor the accounts of UW players, but he hasn’t interacted with the Twitterverse until today.
He made his first tweet about an hour ago.

Romar had 1,653 followers this morning, but that’s likely to grow the more he tweets.
Several Pac-12 coaches are using Twitter to connect with fans and players including UCLA’s Ben Howland, Arizona’s Sean Miller, Washington State’s Ken Bone, USC’s Kevin O’Neill and Oregon State’s Craig Robinson.
Perhaps the most prolific tweeter in college college basketball is Kentucky coach John Calipari who is approaching 6,000 tweets and has over a million followers.
WEDNESDAY MORNING LINKS:
— Former UW star Terrence Ross worked out for the Portland Trail Blazers today. He grew up in the Rose City and told the Oregonian: “I can just stay at home. That was a big part. All my family seeing me before I get to work out for the Blazers, that’s like a dream.”
— Oregon State breaks ground Thursday on a $15-million practice facility that will serve as the new home for the men’s and women’s basketball programs.
— Very nice story on Miller and his relationship with his father.
— Former Arizona, Oregon and USC assistant Mike Dunlap was introduced this morning as the new Charlotte Bobcats head coach. The 54-year-old leaves St. John’s. He coached under Lute Olson at Arizona and was offered the interim job in 2008 when Olson stepped away, but declined. Dunlap was an Oregon assistant in 2009-10 under Ernie Kent. Dunlap was also an assistant at USC from 1986-89 under George Raveling.
— In an ESPN interview Jim Calhoun said he still hasn’t decided 100 percent if he’ll return next season to Connecticut. He expects to make a decision this summer.
— UConn is one of 10 schools banned from postseason play during the 2012-13 academic year because of poor classroom performance.
— The NCAA is cracking down on temporary decals and logos that have caused players to slip during basketball games.
