If you found no green tissue layer beneath the bark, and the stems are all brittle and easily broken off all the way to the ground, then it appears you have a completely dead plant, Sorry for your loss.
Before you re-plant, consider why that may have happened and correct growing conditions and maintenance program. Usually the answer is in soil and water management, frost protection, and sometimes pest or disease issues.
