Kansas State’s Weber gets contract extension
MANHATTAN, Kan. — Bruce Weber has won more games in his first two years than any other coach in K-State history. Athletic Director John Currie rewarded Weber with a one-year contract extension through 2019 on Wednesday.
Weber’s pay will stay the same as was set in his first extension in April, 2013. The contract includes a salary of $1.85 million for the 2014-15 season and a bump of $100,000 each year into 2019. Weber’s assistants will also receive raises.
“Our men’s basketball program continues to make terrific progress under Coach Weber and his staff since their arrival,” said Currie. “He and Megan, along with the entire staff, have really embraced being a part of the K-State family and Manhattan community. I am excited about the future of our program and forward trajectory under his leadership.”
Weber is 47-21 in two seasons at KSU. He led the Wildcats to two NCAA Tournament appearances and a share of the 2012-13 Big 12 regular season title.
“I’m appreciative of the type of support that President (Kirk) Schulz and John (Currie) have given me and my coaching staff with this extension,” said Weber. “A significant part of building a successful program is continuity and this type of commitment ensures that we have all the parts necessary to continue to build upon what we have accomplished the last two seasons. The success we have had is a direct reflection of the hard work and sacrifice of our players and coaches. I could not be more proud to be associated with them and look forward to even more success in the future.”
