The man does sound like he has a sense of calling, and feels he can make more of a difference at the college level. ––––––– Despite having the resume and the personality that would make him a rare fit for the league, Romar doesn't have any interest. Largely due to his beliefs and values, Romar isn't one of those guys who yearns for the fame or the money. The notion of coaching at the highest level isn't what ultimately drives him. "I want to impact lives," he said. "Change lives." And he feels as though the ideal venue to do so is in college. "It doesn't mean this is the only place in life I can impact people," Romar said. "But this is where we feel as comfortable as anywhere." "The time from 17 to 22 is a pivotal time in kids' lives," he added. "To be in a position to impact them in that time is important to me." So far, though, it's been bad NBA jobs that have come knocking. Minnesota, Sacramento, etc. What about if his hometown Los Angeles Lakers had come calling? "I wouldn't do it." Romar said. "At least not today."
