Illinois fires coach Bruce Weber

By ESPN.com staff


Illinois fired Bruce Weber on Friday, one day after the Illini lost to Iowa in the first round of the Big Ten tournament, the coach told ESPN.com.

Weber will not coach in the NIT -- if the Illini were to be selected -- or in any other postseason tournament.

Weber said recently that the buyout on his contract is $3.9 million.
