By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

Last Sunday, Bill Snyder retired from coaching. And with their first target, North Texas Mean Green head coach Seth Littrell out of the mix, the Kansas State Wildcats have turned their attention to a prominent FCS head coach.

The Wildcats are now focusing their attention on North Dakota State Bison head coach Chris Klieman, according to FootballScoop. Since the 2014 season, he’s gone 66-6 in five seasons.
