Washington coach Lorenzo Romar says he’s had no contact from UCLA regarding the Bruins’ head coaching position.
Romar was asked about the UCLA job Monday during his season-ending news conference. Romar said it’s understandable his name gets brought up with the UCLA vacancy.
Romar is a Southern California native who worked as an assistant at UCLA from 1992-96, including the Bruins’ 1995 national championship season.
But Romar said, “I’ve said I don’t know how many times, Washington wants me and I want to be here.”
