Bruce Weber Hires Former Southern Illinois Coach Chris Lowery As An Assistant At Kansas State

It didn't take long for former Illinois Fighting Illini coach Bruce Weber to find a new gig. Weber will replace Frank Martin -- who bolted to the South Carolina Gamecocks last week -- next season as the head coach of the Kansas State Wildcats. Turns out, Weber will be taking another recently disposed local college coach with him as an assistant.

Lowery was an assistant coach for the Illini under Weber in the 2002–03 season, before moving to take Weber's old job as the head coach of the Southern Illinois Salukis. Lowery compiled a 145-115 overall record in eight seasons at SIU.
