Bruce Weber was born October 19, 1956 and is an American college basketball coach, and the current head coach for the Kansas State University men's basketball team. Weber was formerly head coach at Southern Illinois University and the University of Illinois. Weber led Southern Illinois and Illinois each to two conference championships, and took Illinois on six trips to the NCAA Tournament including an appearance in the championship game of the 2005 NCAA Tournament.
Weber has been named his team's conference coach of the year three times, and was the consensus national coach of the year in 2005.
Despite losing three starters to the NBA, the Illini finished the 2005–06 season with a 26–7 record and reached the second round of the 2006 NCAA Tournament. The 2006–07 season had a disappointing start, including the first 3-game losing streak in Weber's tenure. However, the Illini rebounded to finish 23–11 and again qualify for the NCAA tournament. The 2006–2007 season did, however, bring some disappointment off of the court, as guard Jamar Smith was the driver in an accident that left center Brian Carlwell injured. Smith eventually pled guilty to aggravated DUI and received a 15-day jail sentence. The 2007–2008 season marked the first time during Weber's tenure that the Illini did not qualify for a postseason tournament, finishing the season with an overall record of 16–19, 5–13 in the Big Ten Conference. The team improved markedly the following year, however, finishing 24–10 (11–7 in the Big Ten) and returning to NCAA Tournament.
The 2007 campaign exposed the first cracks in Illini's gradual decline under Weber, his first absence in a post-season tournament while at Illinois as well as the first time since 1998 that the Illini failed to qualify. Weber came under intense fire and internal scrutiny for his recruiting (or lack thereof). During the first seven years of his tenure, the Illini signed only three consensus top 100 student athletes. Subsequent years saw what was considered to be improved recruiting, with nine consensus top 100 players in Weber's final three classes to enter the university; however, subsequent events did not indicate that Weber's rebuild had been entirely successful. After a 10–0 start to the 2011–12 season, Weber's Illini went 7–15, finishing the season with a 17–15 record. On March 9, 2012, one day after the Illini lost its Big Ten Conference Tournament opening-round game to Iowa, Weber was fired.
During his nine-year tenure as Illinois coach, Weber amassed a Big Ten Conference record of 89–64, and an overall record of 210–101.
On March 31, 2012, Weber was hired as head coach at Kansas State University, a school that had been to four NCAA tournaments in five seasons prior to Weber's arrival. In hist first season at K-State he led the Wildcats to 25-6 regular season record while going 14-4 in the Big 12. Tied with KU for 1st place, this is K-State's first conference title since 1977. Bruce won the 2012-2013 Big 12 Coach of the Year.
