MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) - Kansas State men's basketball coach Bruce Weber hired Chris Lowery, who worked for him at Southern Illinois, as an assistant.

Kansas State said Thursday that contract details are being finalized, but he'll earn a base salary of $210,000 for 2012-13. Lowery has worked in the past as an assistant to Weber, who calls him an outstanding recruiter.

Lowery took Southern Illinois to three NCAA tournament appearances, the last time in 2007. But the Salukis have had losing records in three of their last four seasons.

Weber was fired after the past season at Illinois and hired by Kansas State to replace Frank Martin, who left for South Carolina.
