Former Washington State head basketball coach Ken Bone discussed presidential debate star Ken Bone in an interview with Sporting News and said the internet legend changed his life for a few days.
“When I went into this business I was hoping the attention would be for winning games, getting an extension on a contract,” the basketball coach said. “You don’t expect some short, chunky guy in a red sweater to change your life for a few days.”
Bone has a career basketball record of 419-276 and was Golden State Warriors star Klay Thompson's college coach.
He currently serves as an assistant for Mark Few at Gonzaga and tells Sporting News that he will debate (no pun intended) wearing a red sweater in a game next season.
“I’m actually at the mall right now looking for one,” Bone said. “It’s crazy how many people have asked me that. They want to see me with a red sweater. It would fit. Red is one of Gonzaga’s colors. But I don’t know if I could do that.”
