Portland State has promoted Tyler Geving to replace Ken Bone as men's basketball coach.

The 35-year-old Geving has spent the past four seasons as an assistant under Bone.

The past two seasons have been the most successful in Portland State history. The Vikings posted consecutive 23-10 seasons and making their first two appearances in the NCAA Tournament.

Geving has been the Vikings' recruiting coordinator.

He is the 12th head coach in school history, the fifth since basketball returned before the 1996-97 season.

Geving began his coaching career as an assistant at Central Washington in 1994. He has never been a head coach.
