OFFICIAL: Cameron Dollar rejoins UW

Cameron Dollar, who was Lorenzo Romar’s lead assistant coach for 11 years, including eight years at Washington, has rejoined the Huskies staff, has learned Saturday morning through multiple sources. 

“Cameron brings a wealth of knowledge, extensive experience and valuable relationships to our program that are just unparalleled,” said new Washington Men's Basketball Coach Mike Hopkins. “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. We are so lucky to have someone of his caliber on our staff!”

“It is an honor to rejoin the Husky nation,” said Dollar to “I have known and respected Coach Hop for years. We have the same core values about life on and off the court. Furthermore, I’m excited for the opportunity to continue to help young men grow and reach their dreams.”  

Dollar, who was a UW assistant coach from 2003 to 2009, is Mike Hopkins’ second assistant coach hired since taking over the Washington Head Coach position after Romar was not retained following a 9-22 season.

The first coach retained was former UW guard Will Conroy, who coached with Romar last year and in 2015. 

Dollar was recently let go from Seattle University, where he served as the Redhawks’ Head Coach from 2010 through the 2016-17 season. His SU record was 107-138, and had only one winning season in eight tries. 

While at Montlake the first time around, Dollar was credited for having a big hand in revitalizing a Washington program that made four NCAA Tournament appearances in seven seasons, including back-to-back Sweet 16 teams in 2005 and 2006.
