Coach Lorenzo Romar’s plan for Washington never truly came together this season and with two weeks remaining in the regular season, the Huskies are tied for seventh in the Pac-12.
Romar has six seasons remaining on a 10-year contract extension that expires after the 2019-20 season. He also has the full support of Washington athletic director Scott Woodward.
“As far as I’m concerned, Lorenzo Romar is a perfect fit for Washington,” Woodward said last month.
This season has been marked with an amazing milestone – Romar moved into second place on UW’s all-time coaching wins list.
And it’s also been filled with several disappointments. Barring a miraculous finish, UW will miss the NCAA tournament for a third straight year.
To underscore the mounting defeats, fan apathy is up and attendance is down — by 19 percent at 10,000-seat Alaska Airlines Arena, where the Huskies are averaging 6,439 fans.
There’s plenty of reasons to explain Washington’s troubles ranging from recruiting mistakes, early defections, transfers and injures.
