Ken Bone named coach at Portland State

Portland, OR (Sports Network) – Ken Bone has been named the men’s basketball
coach at Portland State. Bone takes over for Heath Schroyer, who left the
school to take an associate head coaching position at Fresno State.

Bone, who had spent the past three seasons as an assistant coach at the
University of Washington, was the head coach at Seattle Pacific for the 12
seasons prior.

Bone led Seattle Pacific to a 253-97 record with six conference championships
and eight NCAA II tournament appearances.

“First of all, it’s exciting to coach at the Division I level at a program
like Portland State where they are coming off a great season with 19 wins and
a conference title,” said Bone. “I really think this is a great fit for myself
and my family. It will be a great place for us to live and raise our kids.”

Prior to his tenure at Seattle Pacific, Bone had two collegiate head coaching
jobs. He coached the 1984-85 season at Cal State Stanislaus and directed the
Olympic Community College program in Bremerton, Washington during 1985-86.
Bone served four years as an assistant at SPU under Claude Terry from 1986-90
before taking over head coaching duties beginning with the 1990-91 campaign.
