SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) -- Ken Bone will return as men's basketball coach at Washington State next season.

Bone said Thursday that he had a meeting with athletic director Bill Moos on Wednesday and was told he will return to lead the Cougars for a fifth season.

Bone had been on the hot seat after the Cougars finished 13-19, and just 4-14 in the Pac-12. It was Bone's first losing season with the team.

Bone says he was not given any specific targets to achieve. But he says winning just four games in the league is not acceptable.

Bone is 70-65 in his first four seasons at Washington State.
