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.
