Kansas State extends Weber through 2019

Manhattan, KS ( - Kansas State rewarded head men's basketball coach Bruce Weber with a one-year contract extension through the 2019 academic year.

The additional year to his current contract secures Weber's services through April 30, 2019. Compensation remains the same per an extension signed in April 2013 and includes a salary of $2.25 million for the additional year during the 2018-19 season. If Weber stays through the end of his contract, he will also receive a $500,000 retention bonus.

"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," Weber said. "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."

Weber has guided K-State to a 47-21 overall record and consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances during his first two seasons at the helm. His 47 wins are the most by a head coach in his first two seasons in school history.

This past season, Kansas State went 20-13 and lost to Kentucky in the second round of the NCAA Tournament.

Weber coached Illinois for nine years before being hired by Kansas State on March 31, 2012.
