WSU introduces Ken Bone

Posted: Updated:
PULLMAN, Wash. - Ken Bone has been coach at Washington State all of one day, and he's already made a big impression.
He was formally introduced Tuesday in Pullman as the school's 17th men's basketball coach. Bone was a big success the last four years at Portland State, taking the Vikings to the NCAA Tournament each of the last two years. Now he'll replace Tony Bennett who left for Virginia.
Bennet knew how to lay on the charm, but we found out Bone is pretty personable as well.
"I'm extremely excited about it, said Bone. "I've got my family here with me today. My wife Connie, Kendra and Jay and Chelsea. We're very excited." Bone then looked at his family and quickly asked "We're excited, right?"
"We're excited to be a part of this community," he continued. "We have heard nothing but great things about Pullman.  I am so happy to be a part of Washington State basketball."
The players like him so far. "We trust our staff, Jim (AD Jim Sterk) and President  Floyd, so we knew they were gonna bring the best guy for our team and I think they did a great job," said sr. guard Nikola Koprivica.
Bone immediately chimed in "Hell play a lot."
