Ken Bone (born (1958-05-21)May 21, 1958[1]) is an American college basketball coach and the former head men's basketball coach at Washington State University.

Coaching career[edit]

Bone, a Seattle, Washington native,[1] graduated from Seattle Pacific University in 1983. He was an assistant coach at Shorecrest High School in Shoreline, Washington and Cal State Stanislaus before returning to Seattle Pacific as an assistant coach in 1986, becoming head coach in 1990. In twelve years at Seattle Pacific, he compiled a 253–97[2][3] (72.3%) record and made 8 appearances in the NCAA Division II Tournament, reaching the semifinals in 2000.[4] From 2002 to 2005, Bone was an assistant coach at Washington,[2][3] where he helped recruit all-time Huskies rebounding leader[5] and NBA player Jon Brockman,[6] who was coached by Bone's older brother,[7] Len Bone, the Snohomish High School boys' basketball coach.[8]

In 2005, Ken Bone became head coach at Portland State and was selected as the 2007–08 Big Sky Conference Men's Basketball Coach of the Year after taking the Vikings to their first ever NCAA Tournament.[4] In 2009, Bone coached the Vikings to a second consecutive appearance in the NCAA Tournament.[4] In four years with Portland State, Bone compiled a 77–49 record.[2][3]

In 2009, Bone accepted an offer to become the head coach at Washington State.[2][4] He signed a 7-year contract.[9]

Bone was dismissed from the WSU Basketball program on March 18th of 2014 when the Athletic Director, Bill Moos, elected to pay off the remaining two years on his seven year contract. This was following a 2014 campaign that saw the Cougars go 10-21 overall and 3-15 in conference play. [10]
