Video: Lorenzo Romar on Brad Jackson

Lorenzo Romar introduced Brad Jackson, the newest addition to the Washington coaching staff.
The 60-year-old became an icon at Western Washington where he amassed a school-record 518 wins, which is the third most all-time in the state. He also led the Vikings to a 31-5 record and a NCAA Division II title this year.
After spending the past 27 years at WWU, Jackson was excited about the new turn in his coaching career. He didn’t rule the possibility of becoming a head coach again and he’s adjusting to no longer being in charge of a program.
At the moment, his duties are somewhat unclear.
Said Romar: “He will do a lot of scouting on opponents. He will be big in recruiting. … Just (adding) overall to program development using all of his expertise.”
Said Jackson: “I’ve been coaching for a lont time. … I think I’m a very good teacher. I think I’m a good communicator. I enjoy people. Always like recruiting a lot. My goal is to be a good team member. As we go to sort through and see where strengths lie and how it fits together.”
It’s conceivable to believe Jackson will help Romar implement the new 1-3-1 offense because he’s been running a high-post attack at Western Washington for nearly three decades.
Jackson will also work with the guards leaving assistant Paul Fortier to instruct the forwards and centers.
