KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Kansas State coach Bill Snyder will be back on the sideline next season.
The 78-year-old coach had been mulling his future since the Wildcats beat UCLA in the Cactus Bowl last week. Snyder ultimately announced in a brief statement Tuesday that he would return, ending growing speculation in some circles that he might retire for a second time.
"As I have stated many times, as long as I remain in good health, am wanted and have a positive impact on the young people in our program, I will continue to be the head coach at Kansas State," he said. "Those factors have not changed, and I look forward to meeting with our players and beginning our out-of-season program when classes resume."
