MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — Things didn’t go well for Kansas State the last time it tried to replace Bill Snyder.

It was 2005, and the Hall of Fame coach had suddenly retired. The Wildcats hired a nondescript offensive coordinator from Virginia named Ron Prince and he briefly energized the program, only to watch it fall so far into mediocrity that Snyder was summoned back to the sideline.

Time for a second chance.
