200-Game Winner and Hall of Famer, Kansas State head coach Bill Snyder exemplifies what it means to be an elite coach.

Snyder gained a reputation as an innovator and mentor in college athletics through his values, sincerity, warmth and concern for all the people he was involved with.

The architect of the “greatest turnaround in college football history” returned to the sidelines in 2009 with hopes of revitalizing a program that he once built, piece by piece, into a national force. And, after nine seasons back in charge, he did just that – and then some.

Over his last nine years, Snyder led K-State to 73 victories – an average of 8.1 wins per year – advanced to eight-straight bowl games, won a conference championship in 2012 and finished fourth or better in the ultra-competitive Big 12 Conference in five of the last seven seasons. The Wildcats’ eight-year bowl streak tied for 13th in the nation and third in the Big 12.

Kansas State under Snyder was a model of consistency, and that didn’t changed in his second tenure. From 2009-17, only 11 FBS programs had the same head coach but only four – K-State, Alabama, Clemson and Oklahoma State –  totaled at least six wins in all nine seasons.

Furthermore, Snyder became just the 26th coach in the history of college football to reach 200 career wins and only the sixth to do so while coaching at the same school for his entire career as he hit the mark against Kansas in 2016.
