SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) -Ken Bone has been introduced as the 17th basketball coach at Washington State.
Bone said during Tuesday's news conference that he hopes to duplicate the success of previous coach Tony Bennett.
The Cougars were 69-33 the past three years, going to the postseason each year. They have the second best record in the Pac-10, behind UCLA, in that period.
Bone spent the past four years as coach at Portland State and before that was an assistant at rival Washington under Lorenzo Romar.
Bone said his first priority will be choosing a staff, starting with candidates from the current WSU staff and his own assistants at Portland State. He also wants to cement the current roster, and keep the four recruits signed by Bennett for next year.
