Bruce Weber has been fired as head coach of the Illinois men's basketball team.  ESPN is reporting Weber sent a text message to them telling them he had been let go. 

Weber had a record of 210-101 in nine years at Illinois, but the Fighting Illini went 17-15 overall and dropped 12 of their last 14 games, including a 64-61 loss in the first round of the Big Ten Tournament last night. 

The loss ended any hope for a NCAA Tournament bid.
