Lorenzo Romar and the University of Washington added a significant piece to their coaching staff on Friday.

University of Missouri women's assistant coach Michael Porter Sr. confirmed to Rivals.com that he is leaving his job to take an assistant coaching position working for Romar at the University of Washington.

One of Porter's sons, 2018 four-star power forward Jontay Porter, is already committed to play at Washington. The Huskies are also one of the main teams in the mix for another one of Porter's children, 2017's No. 2 player Michael Porter Jr.

While this is no guarantee that Porter Jr. follows in his father and younger brother's footsteps and picks the Huskies, it certainly helps in a big way. It should also be noted that Romar is Porter Jr.'s Godfather.

According to Porter Sr., both of his sons will be moving to the Seattle area and will begin attending school there in the fall.
