Bill Snyder

Bruce Haertl and For What It's Worth | February 1, 2013
For What it's Worth on February 1 -- Bill Snyder signs a new five-year deal that will keep him coaching at Kansas State until the age of 78. That's a sentence that wouldn't have been believed four years ago. Lest we forget--- The 2005 retirement of Bill Snyder was generally accepted as the right thing by K-Staters after he went 9-13 in the last two seasons of his first tenure. His return after three forgettable years from Ron Prince at the Wildcat helm was widely looked upon as a stop gap. Four years later, there's nobody else the Wildcat Nation would stand for on its sideline.
