Romar happy for Bone

UW coach Lorenzo Romar told the Times from Detroit today he obvious — that he is happy for his former assistant Ken Bone, who now becomes his rival as the new head coach at Washington State.
In Bud Withers’ story on the hire today, Romar called Bone a coach “who does things right.”
Romar also recalled that when he got the job at UW in 2002 he almost immediately knew that he’d probably ask Bone to join him.
“When I got the job at Washington, I knew he would be a guy who would probably be on my staff,” Romar said. “He’s just so genuine. He has a really nice rapport with people.”
Bone told The Oregonian tonight that coaching in the Pac-10 had long been a goal and something he just couldn’t turn down. That story also indicates that PSU associate head coach Tyler Geving will be given serious consideration to take over for Bone. If Geving doesn’t get it, UW assistants Cameron Dollar and Jim Shaw could each be candidates.
