Former UW assistant Ken Bone has been named head basketball coach at Washington State according to the Spokesman Review.
Sources close to the situation said Bone, 50, has been the focus of the week-long search to replace Tony Bennett, who left after three years as WSU coach to take the same position at the University of Virginia.
UW coach Lorenzo Romar had this comment in the Online Seattle PI.
"This is something I anticipated could one day happen. I just knew he was the type of superstar coach that could end up in our league. But we're both competitors and we'll be trying to do everything we can to help our respective teams win when we play each other."
