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.
