Tonight, Kansas State announced via a statement from the man himself that Bill Snyder will indeed return for another season at the helm of the Wildcat football program.
"As long as I remain in good health and have a positive impact on the young people in our program, I will continue to be the head coach at Kansas State University. Those factors have not changed." -Coach Snyder#EMAW #KStateFB pic.twitter.com/nxKoNCd4dn— K-State Football (@KStateFB) January 3, 2018
The announcement puts to rest the Weeks of Speculation™ following the end of the regular season, although the future viability of this now-annual celebration is questionable as stakes have changed with the institution of the early signing period.
Snyder’s first order of business now that he’s officially sticking around will be backfilling the vacant offensive coordinator position.
Snyder will enter 2018 with a career record of 210-110-1 over 26 seasons; that win total is second only to Nick Saban (217) among active FBS coaches.
