Legislators, Brownback honor Kansas State’s Snyder


— Kansas State University football coach Bill Snyder continues to pick up honors for the Wildcats' successful 2011 football season.

Legislators and Gov. Sam Brownback congratulated Snyder on Wednesday for the team's 10-3 season with proclamations in both chambers and ceremony in the governor's office.

Snyder was named Big 12 Coach of the Year by The Associated Press and by the Big 12 coaches. He was also named the 2011 Woody Hayes National Coach of the Year.

Kansas State earned a trip to the Cotton Bowl for the first time since 2001, losing 29-16 to Arkansas.

Snyder has 159 victories as head coach at Kansas State, which ranks 11th among active NCAA Division I coaches. He is credited with reviving the football program in Manhattan since arriving in 1989.

No issue with Bill Snyder. There is a reason that stadium bears his name. Now if we could do something about some of their fans...

Yes, yes, he's a good coach. Lets make it interesting though...

How many years of coaching does Snyder still has ahead of him? (72 years old currently.)

My guess be that Snyder will be at KSU longer than Weis is here at KU.

So you're saying it will be quite some time.
