Former Seattle University head basketball coach Cameron Dollar has come back to the University of Washington. New men’s basketball head coach Mike Hopkins announced Sunday that Dollar is the second former assistant to Lorenzo Romar to be hired, following Will Conroy.

Dollar was an assistant from 2002-09 before becoming head coach at Seattle University as it moved to Division I play in the Western Athletic Conference. He was fired earlier this month with a 107-138 career mark and one winning season.

“Cameron brings a wealth of knowledge, extensive experience and valuable relationships to our program that are just unparalleled,” said Hopkins in a statement. “I’ve known him since he was a player at UCLA and I have a ton of respect for him, not only as a coach but as a person. Our values aligned right away. His passion to help develop young men on and off the court is so evident.”

“It is an honor to rejoin the Husky nation,” said Dollar in a statement. “I have known and respected Coach Hop for years. We have the same core values about life on and off the court.”

Dollar was credited with playing a major role in coaching and developing Washington teams that made four NCAA Tournament appearances, including two visits to the Sweet Sixteen. Conroy was among the players Dollar tutored.

Romar coached the Huskies for 15 seasons, but failed to produce an NCAA Tournament team for the past six. The 2016-17 Huskies went 9-22.

Two days after Romar was ousted, Washington hired Hopkins, a 22-year Syracuse University assistant, to replace him. Another Washington assistant coach, Michael Porter Sr., left last week after one season at UW and joined the staff at Missouri under new head coach Cuonzo Martin, hired away from Cal.

Porter’s son, Michael Jr., de-committed from the Huskies and followed his dad to Columbia, MO, where he was born and raised. Joining them was younger brother Jontay, who had orally committed to UW and Romar.

    Any truth to the rumor that Ken Bone will takeover Seattle U. Basketball whenever Gonzaga’s run ends? Or might Lorenzo end up there?
