Bill Snyder has told Kansas State officials that he will return to coach the Wildcats.
A person with knowledge of the hiring told The Associated Press that the 69-year-old Snyder would be introduced at a news conference Monday morning. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because no official announcement had been made.
Snyder retired three years ago after turning around the football program at Kansas State in what’s been called “the Miracle in Manhattan.” He left with a 136-68-1 record and was replaced by Ron Prince.
The school said only that the news conference was to discuss the coaching situation.
