After ten seasons as the head coach at Kansas State, Bruce Weber announced on Thursday that he would be resigning from his position. Weber went 184-147 overall but is coming off three-straight losing seasons.
“Coach Weber has provided selfless leadership to our basketball program and university for the last decade,” AD Gene Taylor said in the release. “With two conference championships and an Elite Eight run in 2018, our program reached exceptional levels of success under his direction. His development of young men on and off the court, while representing K-State in a first-class manner with the highest level of integrity is unmatched in today’s game and something all K-Staters should take great pride in.”
Weber led the Wildcats to Big 12 titles in both 2013 and 2019 before going a combined 34-58 over the last three years. Before his hiring at K-State, Weber was the head coach at Illinois for nine seasons – a tenure that was highlighted by a NCAA Tournament Runner-Up finish in 2005.
A national search for Weber’s replacement has begun. We will post our list of potential candidates in the next couple days.
