According to multiple media reports, Kansas State Wildcats head coach Bill Snyder is expected to step down. He has been the Wildcats head coach for 27-years over two stints.
Snyder was reportedly set to meet with Athletic Director Gene Taylor on Wednesday. However, he reportedly needed more time to make a decision.
FootballScoop and 247Sports are reporting he’s expected to step down by the end of the week. This season the team went 5-7.
Snyder previously retired in 2005. Then, he was convinced to come out of retirement in 2009.
He went 6-6 in his first season back with the program. Then, he has rebuilt the team into prominence once again.
This season will be the first-time they missed a Bowl game since 2009. Since his return, the Wildcats have been 3-5 in Bowl games.
In his 27-years, he is 215-117-1 in 333 games. He is just 9-10 in Bowl games.
Once Snyder steps down, the school reportedly already has two coaches in mind. Oregon Ducks defensive coordinator Jim Leavitt and Clemson Tigers defensive coordinator Brent Venables are those two candidates, according to FootballScoop.
If he left for any other job prior to Jan. 31, 2019, he would have to pay the Ducks $500,000. However, if he would leave for Kansas State, he would owe the school nothing.
The 61-year-old is 95-57 as a college football head coach. He also went 25-26 within conference play with the USF Bulls from 1997 through 2009.
Venables has no prior head coaching experience.
