College Football: Kansas State Wildcats
MANHATTAN Days after saying he could see himself continuing to coach for quite some time, Bill Snyder has agreed to a new five-year contract with the Kansas State football team that will run through 2022.
Snyder, 78, is the oldest active coach in college football. He will be 83 when this contract expires.
The new contract will increase Snyders pay from $3.2 million to $3.45 million this season. His annual pay will increase by $300,000 at the conclusion of 2019 and 2020. If he remains coach at that time, he will sit down with K-State athletic director Gene Taylor and negotiate a new salary for the final years of his deal.
