1988 Kansas State University Hires Bill Snyder as Head Football Coach

Kansas State football started in 1896 but by 1988 the program was in trouble. The Wildcats hadn't won a game on the gridiron since October 1986. The team was called one of the worst in the nation by Sports Illustrated. But then K State hired Snyder in November of 1998 and things began to change. Snyder had a plan to turn the failing football program around. His 16 rules for goals to success turned the team into a national football powerhouse. K State won the Big 12 championship in 2003. Snyder has been awarded seven national Coach of The Year Awards and is ranked twelfth nationally in wins among active FBS coaches.
