Bruce Weber resigned as head coach of the Kansas State Wildcats men’s basketball program after 10 seasons on Thursday.
Weber, 65, led Kansas State to the NCAA Tournament five times during his tenure, including a run to the Elite Eight in 2018, but the Wildcats just ended their third consecutive losing season, losing six games consecutive year-end and beat 14 -11 start.
Kansas State was eliminated in the first round of the Big 12 Tournament on Wednesday with a 73-67 loss to West Virginia.
“Coach Weber has provided selfless leadership to our basketball program and college over the past decade,” Kansas State Athletic Director Gene Taylor said in a statement. “With two league championships and one Elite Eight in 2018, our program has reached exceptional levels of success under his direction. His growth of young men in and off the field, while representing K-State in a first-rate manner with the highest level of integrity is unprecedented in today’s game and something all K-States should be extremely proud of. “
Weber previously coached Southern Illinois and Illinois, leading both teams to the Round of 16 Sweet.
