Bennett Will Not Go to Indiana

Posted: Updated:

PULLMAN, Wash. - Responding to reports that Cougar Head Men's Basketball Coach Tony Bennett had been contacted by Indiana University regarding its vacant head coaching position, Bennett released the following statement:

"Last night I had an exploratory conversation with Indiana," said Bennett. "They went through the proper channels by contacting (WSU Director of Athletics) Jim Sterk and then earlier today I let Indiana know I am not going to pursue the position."

This past season Bennett guided the Cougars to a 26-9 record and a second-straight NCAA Tournament appearance for the first time in school history.
