MANHATTAN, Kan. (WIBW) -- Fresh of taking the K-State Wildcats to the Elite Eight, Bruce Weber was given a two-year contract extension on Friday.

Weber is now under contract through the 2023 season. The seventh-year head coach will be paid $2.5 million in 2018-19 and receive a $100,000 increase to his salary in each remaining contract year culminating in a $2.9 million base for the 2022-23 season.

“We are very fortunate to have not only such an outstanding basketball coach but also a man in Coach Weber who conducts his program with integrity and class and is widely respected across the nation,” said K-State Athletics Director Gene Taylor in a statement. “Certainly last season was one of the most memorable postseason runs in our program’s history, and we are excited for next season and the years ahead under Coach Weber’s leadership.”

Weber was hired by K-State in 2012 and has gone 125-80 since then.
