Moos, speaking on his weekly radio show in Spokane, said "conflicting schedules" have prevented him from meeting with Bone sooner. Moos also was fighting an illness that he said prevented him from attending WSU's season-ending loss to Stanford last Wednesday at the Pac-12 Tournament in Las Vegas.
The Cougars have finished 11th in the Pac-12 the past two seasons, including a tie for last in 2012-13. WSU wound up 10-21 this season (3-15 Pac-12), dropping Bone's five-year record to 80-86 overall and 29-61 in conference play.
WASHINGTON STATE IS serving as the host school for the NCAA men's basketball sub-regional being held at the Spokane Arena on Thursday and Saturday.
Moos said all available tickets sold out two months ago, but he expects participating schools to return some unsold tickets.
MOOS CONTINUES TO push for increased membership in the Cougar Athletic Fund, which reached record numbers last year.
Fans can join for as little as $50 a year. Fans are welcome to volunteer to help recruit new members. Some current WSU students are serving as volunteers.
Recruit two new CAF members and you win a club seat for a home football game. The top prize for volunteers is an expense-paid trip to a football road game.
Moos noted that booster Dan Harmon, who works for the Hoffman Construction company that built the Martin Stadium premium seats and the football operations building, offered to match any $50 CAF donations made at the recent football social in Beaverton, Ore.
"It ended up costing him $10,000," Moos reported.
MOOS THANKED PEOPLE for reaching out to him following the recent death of his father, former state legislature Don Moos. The elder Moos won two Purple Hearts while serving in the Army in World War II.
"I was very close with my father," Moos said. "It's tough when you lose a dad and a great, great friend at the same time. He was just four days short of his 91st birthday and in failing health and continued to be very highly thought of in state government in the state of Washington, and a very good Cougar.
"He and my mother (Parmalee), both Cougars. Met at Washington State in 1941. They were married 68 years. She preceded him (in death) by about a year, but they both had full, great lives."
