Report: Bill Snyder plans to return as the head coach of Kansas State in 2018

According to a report from K-StateOnline.com, Bill Snyder plans to return as head coach of the Kansas State Wildcats in 2018.

Whether this is a good or a bad idea, no one knows yet. Bill Snyder took the Wildcats to heights that they never achieved before, but it’s about time to be planning for the future at Kansas State, whether it’s Sean Snyder or an outside hire.

Snyder is facing down a daunting task this offseason — finding an offensive coordinator and a 10th assistant coach legislated by the NCAA. It’s good that he’s returning so that there can be more continuity, but how long can Snyder conceivably coach for?

The question facing Kansas State is simple, how long can they afford to keep Snyder around and not move on? Sure, Snyder gave them their best years, but how long can Kansas State afford to hang in the balance, or on the word of one man? He’s earned the benefit of the doubt, but that benefit seems to be wearing thin.
