LaVetter

Lance LaVetter, who had been the longest tenured person on Washington coach Lorenzo Romar’s staff, left the Huskies for Seattle University where he reunites with Redhawks coach Cameron Dollar, a former UW assistant.

LaVetter spent the past 12 seasons at UW.

“I am thrilled for Lance to join our staff,” Dollar said in a statement released by Seattle U. “He brings a wealth of winning coaching experience that will help us continue to elevate our program. Also, his familiarity with my coaching style and philosophy will make this a smooth transition.”

LaVetter returns to the bench as an assistant. He replaces Donald Dollar, who had been on his son’s coaching staff the past five seasons.

LaVetter graduated from Northern Arizona in 1992. He was an assistant for the New Mexico State men’s basketball team (1995-97) and Portland’s women’s basketball team (1997-99) before joining Romar at Saint Louis (1999-02).

Romar, Dollar and LaVetter arrived at Washington in 2002. LaVetter had been an assistant the first two years at UW before assuming the director of basketball operations position 10 years ago.

A UW spokeswoman said the team has not filled the vacancy on the staff at this time.
