Kansas State football coach Bill Snyder is the nation's oldest active head coach on the major college level.  As KPR's Greg Echlin reports, Snyder has signed a new contract that will keep him coaching the Wildcats for awhile. 


Kansas State's head football coach, Bill Snyder, has agreed to a new, five-year contract. K-State announced today (THUR) that the new contract has an automatic rollover provision after the completion of each season. With scheduled salary increases each year, Snyder's five-year total compensation comes to $14.75 million through the 2017 season. The new deal was approved by K-State President Kirk Schulz, who said, "Bill Snyder is one of college football’s most respected legends and a complete ambassador for K-State and Manhattan." Snyder built a 21-5 overall record during the past two seasons. He was named 2012 Big 12 Coach of the Year by both the Associated Press and his fellow coaches. He was also named the Bobby Dodd National Coach of the Year.
