NWSB Insider and Washington State Cougars Blogger Jeff Duncan makes a case for why Ken Bone deserves more time as WSU’s head basketball coach. In his four seasons at WSU, Bone has a 70-65 overall record. That’s a winning percentage of over .500. Not many Cougar head coaches can claim that after their first four years. He’s also recruited talent such as Mike Ladd, DaVonte Lacey, Reggie Moore, Royce Woolridge and Demarquise Johnson

With talent coming in next season, the team could show improvement. The question is, will Bone be around to see it?
