Here's the release put out today by WSU:
Curtis Allen has been named assistant men's basketball coach at Washington State University, Cougar Head Coach Ken Bone announced Monday.
Bone served as an assistant coach during Allen's final two seasons as a member of the University of Washington basketball team. A Tacoma, Wash. native, Allen joined Bone's staff at Portland State, where he served as an assistant coach for four seasons. At PSU, Allen was involved with all aspects of coaching on the floor for the Vikings. He primarily worked with the guards and the defensive side of the game, and was heavily involved in recruiting.
Allen, who played at Washington from 2000-04, spent one year as an assistant varsity coach at University Prep in Seattle. He also coached at Ballard High School during the summer of 2005, participated in UW and Seattle Pacific Basketball camps and operated his own camp at the Ballard Boys and Girls Clubs.
While a member of the Husky basketball team, Allen competed in 117 games, starting 51. He was the most accurate free throw shooter in UW history, making 202-of-233 for a .867 mark. Allen also made 151 career 3-point field goals to rank second all-time. He was eighth all-time in assists (286) and 10th in steals (99). Allen was part of the 2003-04 Husky team that made its first NCAA Tournament appearance since 1999.
Allen received a degree in general studies from Washington in 2005. He and his wife Alissa were married in August 2007 and have a child born this past winter.
