Bruce Weber Begins Job Search
Bruce Weber might not be out of work long.
Less than 24 hours after being fired at Illinois, Weber said Saturday that interested schools had been contacting him for the past month and that he intends to take a short break before deciding what to do next.
He did not identify which schools had called though there has been speculation that he could return to Southern Illinois, where he coached from 1998 to 2003.
“I want to coach. I love coaching, and I love working with kids. We just have to see what situation comes up for us,” Weber said. “For the last month, I’ve had people feeling around. But there’s not jobs open. There’s a few. I have to take a breath right now and exhale a little bit and relax and help my wife and my daughters fight through this.”
