UW can’t afford to fire Romar

Despite ending the season on a school-worst 13-game losing streak and no postseason invites expected to be on the docket, Washington Huskies basketball coach Lorenzo Romar’s job is likely safe, said 710 ESPN Seattle’s Brock Huard.

The reason: The university can’t afford to cut him loose – literally.

“Decision time,” Huard said. “… And what I’m hearing behind the scenes, this decision can’t be made within the constraints of the budget they are facing on Montlake.”

The Huskies had a disappointing 2016-17 season, finishing with a 9-22 record despite the efforts of freshman phenom Markelle Fultz, who is expected to be a top NBA Draft pick. Not only that, this will be the team’s sixth straight season of missing the NCAA Tournament.
