Early Washington names

Washington athletic director Jennifer Cohen says she has a list in mind of potential replacements for Lorenzo Romar, who was fired Wednesday after 15 years as the Huskies’ head coach.

“That’s my job,” said Cohen, in her first year as the AD. “I need to be prepared, and I’ve done my homework.

“I’m looking for somebody that absolutely has a passion for developing young men on and off the court — that’s who we are at the University of Washington. That’s really important. Somebody that has a high standard for excellence. And somebody that has a vision and a plan and an understanding of what Washington’s all about, and that they know that they can build a championship culture here.”

Cohen didn’t reveal anyone on her short list, but here are eight names who could be worth a look.
