Hironaka to WSU

It’ll be made official soon that Seattle Pacific coach Jeff Hironaka is leaving to become an assistant at Washington State, where he will again work with his former boss, Ken Bone.
Hironaka has been the head coach at SPU since 2002 when Bone left to become an assistant at UW. He is 134-67 at SPU.
Hironaka’s hiring fills out the staff at WSU, the others being former UW player Curtis Allen and holdover Ben Johnson, giving the Cougars a strong contingent of coaches with Seattle-area ties.
This could also impact the Huskies as it’s possible that assistants Paul Fortier and Jim Shaw could be approached about taking over for Hironaka.
The Huskies this week hired Raphael Chillious to replace Cameron Dollar, who left last week for Seattle U.
