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.

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.
