Bill Snyder

Bill Snyder started his coaching career in 1966. In 1979 he became the offensive coordinator under Hall of Fame coach Hayden Fry at the University of Iowa. Over the next 10 years, he and Fry turned a program that had not had a winning season since 1961, into a two-time Big Ten champion. In 1989, he became the 32nd head coach of Kansas State University. He would go on to coach them for 25 seasons.┬áIn this time, he would lead them to more than 200 wins, 18 bowl games, and two Big 12 championships. The development of the Kansas State program is considered the greatest turnaround in college football history. And led Hall of Fame football coach Barry Switzer to famously once state “He’s not the coach of the year, he’s not the coach of the decade, he’s the coach of the century.” Bill was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 2015.
