    Nice to have a coach come on board who already knows how to win in the Kennel

    That is amazing....I wonder why ? He might be here to not only teach, but to learn what it is that Few and Associates do to have such success ...

    In any case he is a great addition to the program...

    Bone, a Seattle native who spent two years at Montana after being fired by Washington State at the end of the 2013-14 season, showed interest in the head coaching job at the University of Portland that went to Terry Porter.

    Bone, 57, said he may pursue another college head coaching position or a pro or college assistant’s job. He also may consider taking a break from coaching to spend time with other programs.

    “There’s a chance I find something that really fits and it’s good,” Bone said. “There might be even a better chance that I don’t coach at all this year.”

    Weird timing ----Hope his ties to Romar don't cause any issues with the games against UW that we have coming up.

    Maybe Mike Hart moving on opened up room to add Bone who, from quote, seems to be interested in working on his "game."

    It won't be as bad as it would be to see Kerry Keating or Coachasaurus Rex on the GU bench, but this will take a bit for me to warm up to.

    Maybe Coach Bone is on a special spy assignment for the Evil Empire of the Emerald City.

    Interesting as he may very well end up being a head coach in the WCC before he hangs it up....how do you beat Gonzaga?...oops, oh wait, he already did.....hard for me to swallow.... it would be the same as if by some miraculous warp in time and reality Ham San gets another year of eligibility....none of his paid experience counts and he comes to Gonzaga as a grad transfer....I could never get used to him in a Zag uniform so it's doubtful I'll get used to Bone on the bench....but I'm not Coach and regardless of what some may think he knows what he's doing...the proof is in the pudding....

    I'll probably have to think about puppies when I see him on the sidelines and keep in perspective he's really not an opponent but then I'm a GU fan(atic) and that game hurt...and he still feels like an opponent to me....but then Donny Daniels saw the light and maybe so has coach Bone....at least for awhile....gonna be interesting...

    Just my opinion..

    Go!! Zags!!!

    I think it's a positive. Every coach has some strengths. Maybe it will be a win win for the coaching staff and the team.

    I can't imagine why it wouldn't.

    Can a "volunteer Assistant Coach" even sit on the bench? My guess is that he might be allowed to sit 2nd tier. In any case, he'll add valuable experience to the staff.

    It looks like you found the loophole I was looking for

    I agree with the latter. Any coach that knows how to beat us would seem to be a valuable commodity.

    I think this is a great thing, as a fan of his teams at SPU when they were a D2 power and scoring 90 or 100 regularly, as well as his PSU teams. As to the "enemy" stuff in this thread, nonsense imo. He obviously has a good personal relationship with Few or this wouldn't happen.

    As to beating GU in the Kennel, it's simple. You just tell your 5'6 pg to hit 7 three pointers. On that topic, I remember Bone talking about Dominguez, who averaged like 4 ppg at UP before transferring and becoming Big Sky poy. He said something to the effect that he does things that as a coach you want to tell him not to do, but it's better to just let him go and play on instincts. And it worked.

    Klay Thompson at WSU is another case in point imo. Strictly a spot up shooter playing for Bennett, and became a multidimensional scorer and got to the line a lot playing for Bone, going from like 12 ppg to 20+.

    Great offensive mind, and this is great news imo.

    Coach Bone is a good X's and O's type with his downfall being his recruiting ties as well as straight laced demeanor that doesn't particularly endear him to alumni as the face of a program. I personally think this is good for both Gonzaga and for Coach Bone. He's clearly taking a step back and it may be a good deal for him. By the way, Bone is not a spy for Romar, you can 100% count on Ken Bone's integrity.

    As I recall the loss to Portland State....the weather was so bad that there was consideration for rescheduling or even cancelling the game..... they couldn't fly here and the bus ride took something like 12 hours...it was one of the very few games I have seen Gonzaga lose because they were overconfident....at least in my opinion...

    That particular Gonzaga team had very good skills but may have lacked some of that chemistry stuff...

    The way I recall that game-- their mini point guard hit as many 3's (7-10) as our entire team (7-19) and Daye was shooting a bunch and not making much (rest of team shooting 46% from the field and Daye shot 30% --but he took 15 of the 56 shots for the game--made 5).

    Not a terrible year-- 3 top 25 wins-- a sweep of St Marys and another Sweet 16 dance year ---hoping we at least get there again this year.
