Southern Illinois Salukis offer job to Bruce Weber, source says - ESPN Chicago
“Weber coached at SIU from 1998 to 2003, where he reached two NCAA tournaments and went 103-56. It was Weber’s first head coaching position after spending 18 seasons as a Purdue assistant coach.
Southern Illinois’ position opened March 2 when Chris Lowery was fired after eight seasons. The Salukis went to the Sweet 16 under Lowery in 2007, but he failed to reach the NCAA tournament again. Lowery was a former assistant to Weber at Illinois.
If Weber doesn’t accept the job, Southern Illinois’ other top candidates all have head coaching experience, according to a source.
SIU is high on Vanderbilt assistant Dan Muller and Kansas assistant and former Missouri State coach Barry Hinson. Marquette assistant Tony Benford and Gonzaga assistant Ray Giacoletti also interviewed.”
