Washington State has hired David Riley, previously with Eastern Washington and a two-time Big Sky Conference coach of the year, as their new basketball coach amid program uncertainties.

David Riley, the newly appointed basketball coach for Washington State, promises to bring a winning culture and a fast-paced, high offensive strategy to the program, following his successful tenure at Eastern Washington where he achieved a 62-30 record and consecutive Big Sky regular-season titles. Washington State anticipates a promising future under Riley's leadership despite uncertainties arising from the collapse of the Pac-12 Conference and some players entering the transfer portal.
