Weber gets extension at K-State

(MCT) MANHATTAN -- Two seasons. Two contract extensions.

Kansas State athletic director John Currie on Wednesday awarded basketball coach Bruce Weber his second contract extension since he was hired in 2012. Both deals added a year to his contract. His new contract runs through 2019 without an increase in pay.

Weber's compensation will remain the same, with his salary of $1.85 million increasing by $100,000 each year he remains on the job. If he stays at K-State through the entirety of his new contract he will earn $2.25 million in 2019 on top of a $500,000 retention bonus.

As a result of the new deal, Currie will also enhance the salaries of Weber's coaching staff: Chris Lowery, Alvin Brooks III and Chester Frazier.

"Our men's basketball program continues to make terrific progress under Coach Weber and his staff since their arrival," Currie said in a statement released by K-State.
