Bruce Weber lands quickly at Kansas State

By Jeff Goodman | College Basketball Insider

Bruce Weber's unemployment didn't last long.

The former Illinois coach, who was let go by Illinois a few weeks ago, has been hired to replace Frank Martin at Kansas State, sources told CBSSports.com.

Weber will be introduced Saturday at 3 p.m. in Manhattan, Kansas.

Weber was 210-101 in his tenure at Illinois and 103-54 in five seasons at Southern Illinois. He replaces Frank Martin, who left for South Carolina after leading the Wildcats to four NCAA tournament appearances in five seasons.
