Congratulations to Cameron Dollar, who has been reported as the new head basketball coach at Seattle University.
Dollar has been an assistant at UW since 2002, when head coach Lorenzo Romar first took the reins of the Husky Basketball program. Prior to that, the former UCLA point guard assisted under Romar at Saint Louis University, and even spent one year as a head coach at Southern California College during the 1998-1999 season.
Dollar has been mentioned in connection with numerous head coaching vacancies over the years, most recently Portland State, Washington State, and even Oregon State.
His crosstown migration to the second-year NCAA Division I program at Seattle U. should be a comfortable move, as Dollar has carved his niche recruiting in the greater Seattle area. He is at least partly responsible for bringing in the likes of Brandon Roy, Nate Robinson, and Isaiah Thomas to Washington.
A bittersweet day for Husky Basketball fans, as we lose one of our most trustworthy, loyal assistant coaches. But a happy day at the same time as we cheer for Dollar’s promotion.
Best of luck to C-Money as he makes the short trip across town. If nothing else, we at least know that Seattle U. hired the best-dressed coach they could possibly find.
