Bill Snyder has spent 27 years over two stints at Kansas State, but the 78-year-old head coach isn’t eyeing retirement in the immediate future.
According to Kellis Robinett of the Wichita Eagle, Snyder seemed “downright energetic” and wouldn’t put a timeline on the end of his coaching career.
“I could go on for quite some time, if I don’t get fired and keep having an impact on the players in my program and my family is comfortable with it. I don’t see any particular end in sight.”
Snyder added that when a recruit asks whether he’ll still be around in five years, he replies that “I have no intention not to be.”
After all, if Kansas State continues making bowl games each season, the university won’t push him out. The Wildcats are currently riding an eight-year postseason streak and have recorded eight-plus wins six times since 2011.
Snyder has compiled a 210-110-1 record during his 27 years.
Even after he eventually retires, his name won’t leave the facilities. The team’s home field is named Bill Snyder Family Stadium.
