APNewsbreak: K-State’s Snyder signs new 5-yr deal
Question of the Day
MANHATTAN, KAN. (AP) - Kansas State coach Bill Snyder has signed a new five-year deal that includes an increase in compensation to $14.75 million over the life of the contract.
Snyder’s new deal, which includes an automatic rollover provision, increases his salary to $2.75 million for the 2013 season with annual increases of $100,000.
The deal was expected to be announced later Thursday.
The 73-year-old coach led the Wildcats to an 11-2 record, their second Big 12 championship and a berth in the Fiesta Bowl this past season, and was voted AP’s Big 12 coach of the year.
It was Snyder’s seventh 11-win seasons in 21 seasons in Manhattan, and the first since returning from a brief retirement four years ago. His career record is 170-85-1.
