According to the Moscow-Pullman Daily News, “The Washington State athletic department announced Tuesday that men’s basketball coach Ken Bone was fired today. Bone finished his career with an 80-85 record at WSU, but was only 29-61 in Pac-12 play. The Cougars went 10-21 this season, with a 3-15 record in the conference.
“Ken and I met earlier today,” WSU Athletic Director Bill Moos said in a statement. “At that meeting I informed him I would be making a change in the direction of the program. I appreciate what Ken has done for Cougar Basketball, leading us to the postseason twice in the last four years, and I thanked him for his service to WSU. But at this point we need to revitalize our fan base, particularly our student body, and position this program to compete for championships.”
