Jackson joins Lorenzo Romar’s staff at Washington
Brad Jackson is leaving as head coach of Division II national
champion Western Washington to join Lorenzo Romar’s at Washington
as an assistant.
Both schools announced the move Friday. Jackson had been the
head coach at Western Washington for 27 years, racking up 518
victories and capping his career at the school by leading the
Vikings to their first national championship last season.
Romar tried to hire Jackson in the previously. He says getting
Jackson coming off a national title is ”an absolute steal.” It’s
unclear if Jackson is an addition to the Huskies staff or replacing
another assistant coach.
Western Washington announced Tony Dominguez, an assistant under
Jackson for the last 19 years, will take over as the Vikings
interim head coach.
