Weber earns contract extension through 2019; Romero decision not yet made


Weber Extension
In Bruce Weber’s first two seasons as K-State head coach, he’s won a Big 12 regular season title, taken the Wildcats to two NCAA tournaments and has won just under 70 percent of the games he’s coached. On Wednesday, K-State Athletics Director John Currie announced that Weber has earned a one-year extension to his current contract through April 30, 2019.

Weber will receive a $100,000 salary increase for each of the following years of his contract. By the final year of his revised deal, Weber will make $2.25 million and be eligible for a retention bonus of $500,000.

Leticia Romero update
It was confirmed Tuesday that K-State freshman Leticia Romero is seeking a transfer from the program following the firing of head coach Deb Patterson and departure of assistant coach Shalee Lehning. It was reported by the Topeka Capital-Journal that Romero’s first request for a release was denied by the K-State Athletic Department. Romero made her appeal on Wednesday, and is now waiting for the athletic department’s final decision.
