Weber will remain at Southern Illinois
Bruce Weber said Wednesday he will remain as Southern Illinois men's basketball coach for at least another season.
"We're happy here," Weber, who led the Salukis last month to the Sweet Sixteen round of the NCAA tournament in his fourth year in Carbondale.
Last week, Weber took his name out of consideration for the coaching job at West Virginia.
"We have a pretty good team returning," Weber said. "We've got our program to another level, and now (the question is), can we maintain it."
Weber, however, declined to comment on whether he might move on after the 2002-2003 season.
The Salukis were 28-8 after losing to Connecticut 71-59 on March 22 in the Sweet Sixteen, landing Weber, a former Purdue assistant under Gene Keady, on the list of hot college coaching propects.
