Kansas State Wildcats head coach Bill Snyder has retired on Sunday. This ends the speculation for several days that he would step down.
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 reported Snyder was going to step down by the end of the week. The news was reported by the Manhattan Mercury that Snyder was retiring.
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.
The Wildcats will now focus their attention on Oregon Ducks defensive coordinator Jim Leavitt and Clemson Tigers defensive coordinator Brent Venables are those two candidates, according to FootballScoop.
The 61-year-old Leavitt is 95-57 as a college football head coach, all with the USF Bulls. The 47-year-old Venables has no prior head coaching experience.
Prior to 1989, Snyder was the Iowa Hawkeyes offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach from 1979 through 1988. He also was an assistant with the North Texas Mean Green from 1976 through 1978.
He was the Austin College Kangaroos Offensive Coordinator in 1974 and 1975. Snyder was the Santa Ana Foothill High School (California) Knights head coach from 1969 through 1973. He was also the Indio High School (California) Rajahs head coach from 1967 through 1973.
He spent the 1966 season as a graduate assistant with the USC Trojans. He also was an assistant coach with the Rajahs in 1964 and 1965.
He began his coaching career with the Gallatin High School (Missouri) Bulldogs as an assistant coach in 1962.
