Bone, who took Portland State to consecutive NCAA tournaments and had a 77-49 record there over four seasons, also received a one-time payment of $74,000 to pay his buyout from Portland State.
His package also includes a country club membership, 14 tickets to each home game, tickets to Washington State football games and costs for bringing his wife on road trips.
If Bone leaves early, his buyout clause starts at $500,000, and drops to $300,000 in the final years.
Washington State is losing four seniors from a team that went 17-16 last season, including leading scorers Taylor Rochestie and Aron Baynes, as well as part-time starters Caleb Forrest and Daven Harmeling. Only two upperclassmen return next season along with Klay Thompson and DeAngelo Casto, who both were selected for the all-Pac-10 freshman team.
