KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Kansas State head coach Bruce Weber announced on Thursday morning that he has resigned as the men’s basketball coach for the Wildcats. Weber’s team lost to West Virginia in the Big 12 Conference Tournament on Wednesday night.

“I’ve got a lot of respect for Bruce [Weber]. I’ve known Bruce for a long, long time,” WVU head coach Bob Huggins said after the game. “Bruce is a heck of a basketball coach. I don’t think he gets near the credit he deserves for what he does. They’re very, very well coached. I told him how much I appreciated him.”

Weber has coached at Kansas State since 2012, after coaching at Illinois for a near-decade. Weber led the Fighting Illini to the national championship game in 2005 coaching Deron Williams, Luther Head and Dee Brown. At Manhattan, Weber has coached the Wildcats to the Elite-8 in 2018, with a Big 12 Regular Season Title in 2019. Weber will walk away from Kansas State with 184 wins at the university.
