Otzelberger Added To Romar's Staff

T.J. Otzelberger is headed to Montlake

SEATTLE - Washington Basketball Coach Lorenzo Romar announced that T.J. Otzelberger has joined the Huskies' staff as an assistant coach. Otzelberger (AHT-sole-berger) was an assistant at Iowa State for seven seasons and has been associate head coach for the Cyclones since 2010.

"T.J. has earned a reputation as a tenacious recruiter and his depth of experience will benefit our program immediately," Romar said. "We are excited to welcome him to the Husky family."

Otzelberger has established himself as a rising star in the world of college basketball since joining Head Coach Fred Hoiberg's staff in 2006. He is known for his relentless work ethic in recruiting, scouting and player development which helped elevate Iowa State to the top of the Big 12 standings.

"As a coach, there are few chances you get to have the opportunity to work for someone whom you look up to as a coach, a mentor, and a man of great character," Otzelberger said. "I feel like coach Romar embodies all of those qualities, and I'm excited to be a part of the Husky program and compete on the national level each year."
