KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Bruce Weber, the head coach of Kansas State's men's basketball team, announced his resignation Thursday, following the team's first-round loss in the Big 12 Tournament, according to a release from the school.
"With two conference championships and an Elite Eight run in 2018, our program reached exceptional levels of success under his direction," Gene Taylor, the K-State athletic director, said in the release. "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 was named the school's 24th head coach in 2012 and has the third most wins of any head coach in K-State's history, according to the release. He is also one of 10 division one coaches to lead three schools to the Sweet 16.
"A national search for a new head coach will begin immediately," the release said. "There is no set timeline to make a hire, and there will be no comment on the search or the candidates until the announcement of the 25th men’s basketball head coach in school history."
