Kansas State head coach Bill Snyder is one of the most successful coaches in the history of college football. He has been the big reason why the Wildcats have turned things around the last few years and the fans in Manhattan will get to see him on the sideline for at least one more year.
On Monday, the Wildcats released a statement stating Snyder would be retained for the 2016 season. This comes after the Wildcats went 6-7, their first losing season since Snyder’s return, and lost the Liberty Bowl to Arkansas.

Snyder left the Wildcats after a 17-year run from 1989-2005. In that three year stretch without Snyder, the Wildcats went 17-20 and went to only one bowl game.
Since his return in 2009, Snyder has led the Wildcats to at least a 6-6 record in every season and six straight bowl appearances. The Wildcats won the Big 12 and played in the Fiesta Bowl in 2012.
