SEATTLE -- University of Washington men's basketball coach Lorenzo Romar said he's not been contacted by UCLA regarding the Bruins' head-coaching position.
UCLA fired coach Ben Howland on Sunday.
Romar was asked about the UCLA job Monday during his season-ending news conference. He said it's understandable his name comes up when UCLA has a 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."
Romar just completed his 11th season as Washington's head coach. The Huskies finished 18-16 after being eliminated in the first round of the NIT.
Romar also said that reserve forward Martin Breunig will transfer from the school and junior guard C.J. Wilcox has submitted paperwork to the NBA draft advisory committee to evaluate his draft prospects should he leave school early. Wilcox has one year of eligibility remaining.
