New Kansas St athletic director ... football coach to follow?
Gene Taylor is the new Athletic Director at Kansas St. He was the AD at North Dakota St for many years, including in the early 2000's when he hired former Nebraska defensive coordinator Craig Bohl to be the head coach of the Bison.

That eventually lead to three straight national championships at the FCS level, and Bohl being hired as the HC at Wyoming.


Have to wonder, with Bill Snyder entering his 25th year at KSU, will Taylor look to Bohl again? 04-rock

Bill Snyder is perhaps the best coach to ever coach the game.

He will be allowed to retire, again, in his own time.

The new AD would have a short tenure if he were to do anything against Snyder.

For those of us old enough to remember, Kansas St was possibly the worst football program in the country in the 80's before Snyder left Hayden Fry and Iowa and preformed a miracle in Manhattan.

Snyder will be allowed to retire again. But then again, Snyder is 77, and his current contract is up after the 2017 season. He'll turn 78 during the season. To think he'd want to stay on after this year is a reach IMO.

Not many remembers.

But everyone "knows".

Really? They had to force Bowden out at 79. He would have stayed on if he could. Paterno was still coaching at 84. Connie Mack coached until he was 88.

I wouldn't assume anything, and would actually be surprised if he voluntarily quit.

He is also being treated for cancer. With that as a health issue and the fact that his contract is up after this season he may decide to retire at season's end anyway. I agree though that K-ST would be foolish not to let him retire on his on say though even if he wanted to go another year or two beyond his current contract while they started searching for his replacement again. He pulled the rabbit out of the hat not just once but twice after his replacement ran the program back into the ground after he retired the first time. Snyder is a class act and a legend out there and hopefully will go out on top again with the success he has had there in his second tenure too. 04-cheers 07-coffee3

By no means, was I implying that Snyder wouldn't be given anything but the utmost respect and final say on when he steps down. Of course he will.

I was implying that time is coming sooner rather than later, and this in fact may be Craig Bohl's ticket back into the Big 12.

Granted, it would behoove Bohl to win the MWC this year at Wyoming. But they are on an upward trajectory there.


Snyder thinks very highly of the NDSU program. The Bison beat KSU in Manhattan a few years ago and Snyder sent the Bison QB, who orchestrated the last minute game-winning TD drive, a personal hand-written note of congratulations and encouragement.

Jim Leavitt, current Oregon DC, former USF head coach and former K-State assistant under Snyder, has a unique clause written in his contract that allows him to leave his current role without buyout if he becomes K-State's head football coach.

Maybe. But Florida State and Virginia Tech were about as bad.

RE: New Kansas St athletic director ... football coach to follow?
until 1989, I believe there was strong consensus that Kansas State was the worst division 1 program in history. It was just awful. what Synder did a low population state was truly miracle.

while Bowden was still a great coach, it was more of a case that he was in the right place in the right time. Florida State was ready to explode in the 80's simply because of its location in the state of Florida. The fact that Miami, FSU and Florida all took off once they found the right coaches kind of confirms this. But you still had to be a decent coach to take advantage.

Fair enough. Perhaps that will be the case.

Snyder wants his son, Sean, to take over the program. Sean is the special team's coach at KSt.

I'm not sure that's the best move, and I've thought all along that Bohl should follow HCBS, but HCBS has such pull at KSt that Sean may well get the head job (and, IMO, after this year).

Florida St had started winning by then and Virginia Tech never hit those depths. When Synder came to Kansas St in 1989, K-St hadn't won a game in 3 years! Before that they had many 0-11 and 1-10 seasons though out their history. Growing up in Iowa I remember the notion that Big 8 bottom dweller Iowa St could always count on at least one conference win.

Thanks for the info. Well, looks like KSU definitely has some options ... if Taylor even allowed the political leeway to explore. I suppose there will be a committee with finalists, etc. But might all be for show.


Who are the really big dollar KSU football donors?

The Vanier family is the largest. They are ranchers in central Kansas somewhere (I believe near Salina). They donated $60m to the university back in 2014, with $20m earmarked for improvements at Bill Snyder Family Stadium. The new football complex on the north end of stadium bears their name.
