Kansas State head football coach Bill Snyder confirmed he will be the head coach of the Wildcats in 2016, according to Kansas State Athletics.

“Following our bowl game against Arkansas, I had a chance to visit with my family, and they collectively wanted me to do what I wanted to do and none were against my decision to return as long as I am having a positive impact on the young people in our program, my health is in order and as long as I am wanted by the University and the wonderful Kansas State fan base,” Snyder said in a news release from K-State Athletics.

It will be Snyder’s 25th season at K-State in 2016, and he has a record of 193-101-1 overall record with the Wildcats.

“We are all grateful for the incredible leadership of Coach Snyder, and I was delighted when he affirmed to me that he plans to continue,” Athletics Director John Currie said in a news release.  

According to K-State Athletics’ news release, Snyder will be the second-winningest active coach among FBS head coaches in 2016.
