Bennett to view retirement options in 2005 or 2006

Washington State University men’s basketball coach Dick Bennett was quoted in the Wednesday, Feb. 16, issue of The Seattle Times  as saying 2005 or 2006 may be his last season.

Consistent with past comments, Bennett said he would sit down at the end of the season to review the situation and talk to his wife to decide what he will do.

“That’s what I’ve done for a long time. I did that at Wisconsin,” he told the Times. “Here it’s a little more dramatic, only because this will probably end it for good.”

Bennett, 61, was recruited from retirement by WSU in the spring of 2003, after a reknown coaching career in Wisconsin.

The Cougs are 10-12 overall this season and 5-8 in Pac-10 play, and will host Washington on Saturday in Beasley Coliseum.

But the Cougs with six freshman players appear to be on the brink of a great season, with 75 percent of their losses coming in games with spreads of  9 points or less; and six of those games showing a difference 3 or less points.
