Kansas State head coach Bill Snyder has not stepped down yet. But the 79-year-old is expected to walk away from college football in the near future. 

Snyder could step down as soon as this weekend. He was supposed to meet with Athletic Director Gene Taylor on Wednesday, but that meeting was pushed back as he needed more time.

When Snyder does step down, the Wildcats are expected to target North Texas Mean Green head coach Seth Littrell to be the team’s new head coach. It would be the school’s only second head coach outside of Snyder since 1989. 

Snyder retired from coaching in 2005. He was then convinced to come back to coaching in 2009. 

Ron Prince went 17-20 in three seasons after Snyder retired in 2005. His best season was a 7/6 record in 2006. 

Littrell is 23-16 as a college football head coach. He has guided his team to an 18-8 record the past two seasons. 

The team went 9-3 this season. 

The Mean Green began the season on a four-game win streak. They defeated the SMU Mustangs, Incarnate Word Cardinals, Arkansas Razorbacks, and the Liberty Flames.

Their first loss came on September 29th to the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs. They lost 29-27 at Apogee Stadium in Denton, Texas.

North Texas then defeated the UTEP Miners, 27-24, on October 6th. One week later, they won 30-7 to the Southern Mississippi Golden Eagles.

Their second loss of the season came to the UAB Blazers. They lost 29-21 at Legion Field in Birmingham Field.

The Mean Green then got back on track with a 41-17 win over the Rice Owls on October 27th. Their final loss came to the Old Dominion Monarchs on November 10th when they lost 34-31 in Norfolk, Virginia at Foreman Field.

The team won its last two games of the season. First, they defeated the FAU Owls, 41-38 on November 15th. Then, in their season-finale, the team won against the UTSA Roadrunners, 24-21, on November 24th.

Littrell’s name has been mentioned for several jobs due to his success over the past two seasons. He was even mentioned for the Texas Tech Red Raiders position before Matt Wells was named the head coach.
