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.
