FROM PULLMAN — What many had already assumed was confirmed Wednesday after WSU basketball coach Ken Bone and athletic director Bill Moos held their end-of-season meeting, as the Spokesman-Review has learned that Bone remains the Cougars' coach and is expected to return for his fifth season.
Bone, who is headed back on the road to recruit, is scheduled to hold his annual wrap-up teleconference on Thursday afternoon to recap the season.
After the Cougars finished 13-19 and 4-14 in Pac-12 play in 2012-13, there was speculation that Bone's job might be in jeopardy. But it was considered unlikely that Moos would make a coaching change with three years remaining on Bone's contract. He would have been owed $2.55 million by the school if his contract was terminated this season.
