On December 2nd, Bill Snyder announced his retirement from college football. The Kansas State Wildcats will have a tough time finding a replacement for the longtime coach.
At 79 years old, he was the oldest active coach in the nation ahead of Ohio coach Frank Solich. Almost 3 decades of serving as a leader, he proved that he could be persistent and was dedicated to the organization.
Snyder’s resume is full of accolades and accomplishments. In 27 years, the hall of fame coach had a .647 win percentage and a record of 215-117-1. Snyder appeared in 17 bowl games, 7 eleven win seasons, and 2 Conference championships.
In Kansas, he is idolized by so many as a great coach and an even better person. This is a guy that prides himself on his “16 Goals for Success”. Goals such as commitment, unity, and consistency have spread positivity in the locker room for many years.
It will be tough for the Wildcats to move on from the hall of fame coach, however his contribution to the organization will live on for years to come.
