Ken Bone has been hired as an assistant coach at Montana.
Former Washington State men’s basketball coach Ken Bone has been hired as an assistant coach at Montana.
Bone was 80-86 in his five seasons at WSU but was fired in March.
“I thought for me and the first time as a head coach, it’s important to have someone on the bench and in the office that had experience with making decisions, and also having a calm mind to weather the storm in big, pressure games,” said new Montana coach Travis DeCuire.
Bone has a record of 361-202 in 19 years as a head coach.
