Grippi's morning story on Bone hiring

15

From the guy who broke the story today, a few more nuggets. Including: -- A WSU source who says he's "the right guy for us" who is "a great fit here." -- Xavier Thames' personal spokesman, er, dad, not exactly giving a ringing endorsement for the hire. -- Sterk saying he thinks there is a good chance of assistants being retained.

Grippi on at 2:50 p.m. PDT with KJR-950's Ian Furness

If you want the first word, this is the place to go. We'll have the on-demand up afterwards if it's made available. Hat tip to BornCoug for the heads up. EDIT, 4:37 p.m.: If you missed it, you can catch it on-demand here.

Washington State University has offered its men’s basketball coaching position to Portland State’s Ken Bone and is waiting for his decision, The Spokesman-Review has learned. Sources close to the situation said Bone, 50, has been the focus of the week-long search to replace Tony Bennett, who left after three years as WSU coach to take the same position at the University of Virginia.

So says Grippi. It would be a major upset at this point if Bone didn't take the job -- unlike a lot of other schools (looking at you, Arizona) this kind of stuff doesn't generally leak out of the WSU camp unless it's pretty close to a done deal. Cross your fingers.
