We predict the enhancement of the spin-rotation coupling due to the interband mixing. The Bloch wave functions in the presence of mechanical rotation are constructed with the generalized crystal momentum which includes a gauge potential arising from the rotation. Using the eight-band Kane model, the renormalized spin-rotation coupling is explicitly obtained. As a result of the renormalization, the rotational Doppler shift in electron spin resonance and the mechanical torque on an electron spin will be strongly modulated.
