Bill Snyder

The 2009 season saw one of the greatest legends in college football return to the sidelines in hopes of revitalizing a program that he once built, piece by piece, into a national force. And, after four seasons back in charge, Bill Snyder has done just that – and then some.

The architect of the “greatest turnaround in the history of college football” Bill Snyder returned to lead the Kansas State football program in 2009 after 17 ultra-successful seasons as the head coach from 1989-2005. And, following a 7-5 campaign in 2010 and a berth in the inaugural Pinstripe Bowl, the Wildcats climbed to heights only previously seen under Snyder as the Wildcats went 10-3 in 2011, finished No. 8 in the final BCS standings and earned their first Cotton Bowl invitation since 2001.

Coach Snyder talked with Sports Director Dusty Deines at the Beloit Catbacker event to preview just what is in store for the 2014 K-State Wildcats. Listen to the full interview here.
