Bill Snyder was the head coach at Kansas State from 1989 to 2005 when he retired. However, the once great program Snyder built up was torn down in just four years in another coach's hands. So in 2009, Bill Snyder chose to come out of retirement and take over the program again until 2018 when he entered back into retirement.
Snyder has a 215-117 record at Kansas State with two Big 12 championships in 2003 and 2012. Along with being named to the College Football Hall of Fame, coach Snyder received a long list of awards including:
- 1998 AP Coach of the Year Award
