Who cares about being patient and seeing what is truly what — not the Kansas State Wildcats, that is who. The school has announced that they are going to add another year to Bruce Weber‘s contract after just one season with the program. Granted, it was a very good year for the team, but Weber’s MO has always been strong starts with other coach’s players and then faltering as he brings in his own.
Regardless if you are happy, troubled or possibly distraught over the move, there is no denying the success that Weber had in his first year with the team. Weber led the team to a 27-8 overall record, a four-seed in the big dance and he was chosen the Big 12 Coach of the Year.
According to his original contract, as pointed out by Kansas City Sports, being named the Big 12 COY opened up the extension possibility in his contract. Weber’s “newer” deal just adds one more year to the original five year contract. The coach is set to make $1.6 million next season.
K-State AD, John Currie, originally intended to renegotiate the deal sometime in the spring, but felt it was important to speed up the process as quickly as possible and make sure Weber was going to be the Wildcats’ coach for the foreseeable future. You know, unless there is a gaping loophole in his contract which allows him to walk away from the program at any point.
