PULLMAN, Wash. -- Tony Bennett has been promoted to associate head coach for men's basketball, Cougar Head Coach Dick Bennett announced, Friday. "This is an effort to prepare him for the next step at least in resume fashion," Dick Bennett said of his son's new title. "I think he has earned the promotion because of his recruiting. He was a great recruiter at Wisconsin and he has proven to be equally as good here." The younger Bennett came to Washington State from Wisconsin prior to last season and helped the Cougars earn 13 victories.
